29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit | iPads in the Elementary Library | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we often provide lists of digital resources, and many of them are apps.

 

Apps for struggling readers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/50-popular-ipad-apps-for-struggling-readers-writers/

 

Apps for struggling writers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/41-resources-tools-and-apps-to-improve-writing-skills/

 

Apps for project-based learning. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/10-apps-for-more-organized-project-based-learning/

 

Any while many of these apps are for students, the following list of apps from Sam Gliksman can be considered for both teachers and students, and an excellent foundation slew of apps for any 21st century teacher. From GoodReader and Slide Shark to Printopia and Air Display, all fill different niches of 21st century learning, and the many possibilities the iPad affords."

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the Elementary Library | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of  your iPad.
 I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool,  the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again.

***Learn With Leah***: iPad Apps In and Out of the Classroom

***Learn With Leah***: iPad Apps In and Out of the Classroom | iPads in the Elementary Library | Scoop.it

"It's true- I'm  a little bit obsessed with finding and trying new apps.  I don't believe I have gone more than 2 days without downloading a new one.  So I am constantly deleting subpar apps to make room for new exciting apps.  So when I was asked to present "iPad Apps- In and Out of the Classroom"at the Tech Expo held at Sidney Local Schools I jumped at the chance!

 I took note of all of my favorite apps- both those for classroom use and without. My list grew to about 60 different apps- seriously!  And these are all ones thatactually use.  :-D  So I am so excited to be able to share this list with you!  Not all of the apps are free but many are- so I hope you learn about a few new ones!

"Now that the iPad is being popular among our students, we can also shift their writing and publishing experience to this new device and provide them with some awesome apps that allow them to easily create their own ebooks and share them with others. I have curated a list of some popular apps in this regard, check them out below and let me know if you have any other suggestions to add to the list. Enjoy"
