Good videos about math concepts. I don't know if I could use most of them in first grade, but many of them can be used for education!

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | iPads | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

Good stuff - thanks for the post!
Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, September 18, 2013 10:30 AM

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

Super simple and great sharing opportunities.

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, June 17, 2013 10:08 PM

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.

iPads In The Classroom: The Right Questions You Should Ask - Edudemic

iPads In The Classroom: The Right Questions You Should Ask - Edudemic | iPads | Scoop.it
Does the iPad foster or hinder creativity? Is it a comprehensive tool or just a mere distraction? Do we use the iPad just because it makes our classroom look cool? Are we missing the forest for the trees here?
Mrs. Howard's insight:

I think we expect technology to teach for us. However, it is important to use the tools to facilitate the curriculum based on what we know about how to teach. If we simply buy iPads and expect them to take over the role of the educator or take the place of planning, we will have poor results. However, if we are deliberate with our planning and keep the students as our focus, iPads can be a wonderful tool.

Helpful collection of educational apps organized by grade levels and categories

Karen E Smith's curator insight, October 25, 2014 8:57 AM

Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:28 AM

I really appreciate the early childhood apps. I'm gonna recommend them to my students' parents
