Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking.

$10 iPad App Setup - Matt Gomez Kindergarten Teacher

$10 iPad App Setup - Matt Gomez Kindergarten Teacher | SP iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"One question I seem to get a lot about the iPad is what apps do I recommend that are free. I am hearing from a lot of teachers that they have no way to add paid apps and thus are stuck trying to find free apps. My experience is that many free apps stink. They have many adds, require in app purchases to be useful, or are just junk. I tend to stay away from most free apps. So what are you to do if the district controls adding paid apps? My suggestion is to build relationships with the decision makers. Don’t just ask for a bunch of apps, instead provide documentation and purpose for a few apps you would like to have. I know this process takes time and effort but if you can show the purpose and learning you have a much better chance. If you need lesson ideas I suggest checking out my Pinterest page http://pinterest.com/mattBgomez/ ; and three of my favorite Pinterest pages:  iPadsammy http://pinterest.com/ipadsammy/ , TechChef4u http://pinterest.com/techchef4u/ , and Sue Gorman http://pinterest.com/sjgorman/ . Look for apps and lesson ideas there and modify them to fit your standards and kids.

 

If I was starting from scratch this is the $10 iPad app setup I would push for in my kindergarten classroom. (I will be posting a $20 setup later)"

We often offer up a variety of different apps that we think will be useful to teachers in the classroom. From math apps to apps that help students read at various levels and game apps that help users learn in the process,there sure are a lot of them out there. The handy infographic below takes a look at how musicians are using their iPad to learn, compose, and perform.

 

If the iPad (or any tablet, really) can help a musician do those things, why not a burgeoning musician? We think music teachers will find a lot of useful tools for their classrooms below. Keep reading to learn more.
