Dropbox App Updated for iOS 7 with Promises of Even Better Features to Come -teachingwithipad.org | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"I have been a fan of iOS 7 and its fresh new look the last couple of months. Most of the major apps have already updated their design to match that of the operating system. Dropbox has just refreshed their app to go along with the flat iOS 7 style."

There are some great tips here for using Google Apps in your classroom. For example:  #13. Mystery Hangouts. Using Hangouts – Google’s video chat service — classes from different parts of the country or the world can play this “guess where we are” game.

This is a fantastic tool for engaging anyone with picture or video for behavioral feedback, or for social stories and language development.  Very easy to operate and free.  Social stories for kids are a snap.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 12:16 PM

This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

This meets my criteria for a near-perfect educational app. Can be used from K-7 across multiple learning areas. Not free but, if you can only afford to buy one app for your school's iPads, this should probably be it.
