The 55 Best Free Education Apps For iPad | TeachThought

The 55 Best Free Education Apps For iPad | TeachThought | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

"Finding apps isn’t difficult. Finding education apps is only a bit more challenging. Finding free education apps is also possible. Finding free education apps worth downloading is a different story entirely.

 

The following is our list for the 55 best apps for learning we can find. Some are formal learning–math drilling and phonics, for example–while others are RSS readers, social media platforms, and the like. Nonetheless, these represent the 55 best we could find as of Q1 2013."

For an institute the management and filtering of information is very important. Sure there are apps, sure they are free or cheap, but which ones are useful for students at University A.

iPad App Evaluation for the Classroom

The app development market is exploding. More and more companies are creating “educational apps”. In some cases, they are simply digital versions of a book or a web based tool. Some seem to have “no educational value” to it at all, but are still sold under the label of “education”. These apps need to be evaluated.

Texting 1, 2, 3: Schools Test ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ Programs | Techland | TIME.com | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

In September 2011, they rolled out Celly, a text-messaging service that teachers and students can use to make classwork more fun and engaging.

 

Celly is part of a larger national trend in schools known as “Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT),” in which students are allowed to bring their mobile devices to class. Advocates argue that if young people are already glued to them, then teachers and principals should come up with educational uses for them...Feel free to add your own opinion to this debate!
