Interactive Visual Featuring 6 Tasks You Can Easily Do Using iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Interactive Visual Featuring 6 Tasks You Can Easily Do Using iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"This is an interactive image (created using Thinglink) that features a bunch of useful iPad apps that you can use to do tasks you would traditionally do using a pen and paper. I really liked the idea of providing alternatives to do things digitally. For instance, instead of taking notes in a notebook or on paper you can use Evernote or any other note taking app to do it on iPad. The good thing about doing things digitally is that you have the added advantage of accessing, editing, and sharing your work across different devices and platforms and also saving it on the cloud to access it anytime anywhere you go.

As is the case with all the interactive Thinglink images I shared here in the past, the app icons shared here are hyperlinked, just hover your mouse over any of them to access it on the iTunes app store.'
