Periodic table of #STEAM iPad apps

Periodic table of #STEAM iPad apps | Online Childrens Games | Scoop.it
First things first. As I started in my last periodic table post, it’s never just about the apps. End of. That said being guided around tried and tested apps from the classroom can be really helpful.

This new periodic table looks at #STEAM apps, namely those that can link through to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. My massive thanks go to Brett Salakas, Cathy Hunt, Dean Pearman and Rachel Smith for letting me run the table under their gaze and for feeding forward some of the app ideas too.
