"The majority of apps for the iPad are so intuitive that they are very easy to use. Indeed, developers who are successful, concentrate on simplicity to allow those of us with little technical know-how to use their product. This post is in response to a request for a follow up to the ‘Top 5 Back to School Apps‘. The apps below have multiple uses in school and have become integral to classroom practice for staff and students alike."

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack | mobile devices and apps in the classroom | Scoop.it

"The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. Therefore, I will do my best to include both a pay & free app for each objective."

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths | mobile devices and apps in the classroom | Scoop.it

Here are the "Top 8 Apps" for digital storytelling apps picked by Inov8. They point out that these apps encourage creativity, provide support and remediation for students with special needs, and can be used in many different classroom settings. "They are motivating, engaging and will encourage learners to demonstrate their strengths."

 

"For students with special needs, the creativity of digital storytelling apps has allowed us, as educators, the opportunity to observe and understand the strengths of our students. New apps are primarily hands-on and highly visual, and provide an opportunity for those learners who struggle with traditional instructional methods to take advantage of their abilities and strengths. Professionals in special education want to use apps in many different contexts, integrated into global curricula, across disciplines, as well as be able to insert their own content. Ultimately we want to customize, individualize and personalize the use of these digital storytelling apps for our students."
