Bottom line: "Success doesn’t just happen. It takes strategic planning and putting the right building blocks in place for success.

50 Things To Do On The iPad | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

One of my favorites is the FREE Trading Card app. The app allows for multiple student logins (which is perfect for classrooms using a shared iClassroom model) and boasts 7 different templates (fictional person, real person, fictional place, real place, object, event, and vocabulary.)
