John Pearce's insight:

A fairly eclectic collection of apps that you might find useful if you are teaching humanities with an emphasis on data driven and map based apps as well as some interesting game based apps. The nice thing is that most of these apps are new to me :). Thanks Sean.

"After a year or two of tinkering and experimenting with apps for teaching / learing Geography, I have (finally) compiled this list of what I deem to be the most useful iPad apps for teaching Geography. I have not rated any of them, or offered any kind of review. I have merely inserted a screenshot or two and a link to the App Store.

John Pearce's insight:

Unfortunately this app was developed in Germany and though most of the instructions are in English, some of the captions still appear to be in German. The app concept however is quite impressive as a blend of both the actual and rendered content. You really do feel on top of the world :).
