The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack | Pop Culture in Education | 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."

Most people love to learn something new. The desire to gain knowledge is something that seems to be hard-coded into each person. Many people also love to teach others what they know. After all, if no one taught, there would be nothing to learn.
