10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart | Innovation in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad."

Here's How iOS 7 Promises to Make iPad Management Easier for Schools | Innovation in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"

Apple’s engineers are working hard towards meeting their Fall 2013 release date for iOS 7. However, their PR department is also working hard to ensure that educators know the full extent of the changes that are coming, and how they will impact iPad management in the classroom. The full list of changes can be found here, but I discuss some of my favorites below and share why they are a good move for Apple to make…especially in light of the forthcoming Android Google Play for Education Store."

Its easy to start but difficult to sustain. An excellent article systematically explaining the ways to make the ipad program successful in the school.

Bryan Wiedeman's curator insight, October 11, 2014 2:24 AM

This is a fantastic article about iPad use in schools. While it only discusses the use of iPads it talks about a lot of issues related to implementation. A few of my favorite points include developing simple iPad management strategies which I feel is often overlooked. Also Overcoming "There's an app for that" Syndrome which is often hard for teachers to come to terms with when they first start using tablets in classrooms. This article is perfect for a school that has already developed a plan for BYOD implementation and then needs to examine it in more detail to make sure it covers all angles.
