30 essential iPad Apps for the paperless classroom (infographic) - ICT Evangelist | ipadinschool | Scoop.it
I make no apologies for making this an iPad focused post. So many of the schools that I work with have iPads both for students and for educators. The majority of the 30 Apps I’ve chosen are ones I have used extensively myself in the classroom with some new additions which I have seen being used by others to great success.

Blue Planet Tales: Interactive Storybooks for Tablets @ClassTechTips

Blue Planet Tales: Interactive Storybooks for Tablets @ClassTechTips | ipadinschool | Scoop.it
I spend a lot of time visiting schools and talking to teachers about accessing text from tablets.  Blue Planet Tales is an app for iPads and Android devices that places interactive texts in the hands of students.  Students can read along with the text and there are questions at the end of each book.

Blue Planet Tales is a great choice for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments with a mix of Android and iPad tablets.  Students can access a variety of texts straight from their mobile tablet.  This app is full of stories that connect to social studies and science topics.  Topics include Apollo 11, Davy Crockett and Marie Curie.  The app is free to download and each book is purchased individually – users all have the option to sign up for a subscription service.

There’s a very easy way to make better use of the iPad in class. Simply become more aware of what you’re using the iPad for when teaching. This is where the SAMR model comes in, something I believe all teachers should be familiar with. The SAMR model is a 4 stage framework.

Apple TV Settings for the Classroom - Learning in Hand

Apple TV Settings for the Classroom - Learning in Hand | ipadinschool | Scoop.it
If there’s an Apple TV in the classroom, it’s most likely used to mirror teacher and student iPads or MacBooks. There are plenty of other ways to display an iPad on a large screen, and Apple TV is one of the most popular because it has AirPlay. AirPlay is Apple’s technology that will stream a live view of whatever is on an iOS device's screen. This is why Apple TV is so popular. This mirroring ability through AirPlay is built into all iPads (except the first generation iPad) and all newer iPhones and iPod touches.
