Apps in Education: Accessing Students Work on the iPad - Digital Roadtrip | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"I saw this link on Twitter this morning via @jnxyz @digitalroadtrip. This is the sort of workflow that will make things easy for teachers. It is one of the concerns the new or reluctant teachers are concerned about. To be honest moving students work samples is something that, until you try it, you do not realise how time consuming it can be. I have included an image as a link back to the original site. Make sure that you have a look at the rest of the site for some good resources. Digital Roadtrip - Another great catch from the PLN of Twitter"

Core Dump: The Pick of Primary Math Apps | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
"A couple of years ago it was all about ABC apps and the types of educational games that were suitable for preschoolers and younger children. Well, as predicted by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center iLearnII Report, elementary school apps have seen a great surge in 2012. The more schools begin to look at the potential and possibilities for tablet devices (most commonly iPads), the more developers are beginning to explore how to meet the needs of students with different learning styles. This is reflected in the growing diversity of math apps out there."
