Kathy Lynch's curator insight, October 5, 2013 12:12 PM

Definitely worth looking at fro Teachers. Thx John

Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 6, 2013 12:51 PM

Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, October 7, 2013 1:56 AM

But are these apps really any good for education?

Humans thrive on visual stimuli, and interaction. We don’t want to hear about the latest tablet, or even read an article about it. We want to see it for ourselves.
