The rush to purchase iPads often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s so crucial to their success as educational tools. Technology alone is never the answer.
"A couple of days ago I posted here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning about iPad apps for playing math games and I received several other suggestions of new apps which I will compile in a new list to be published this week. One of the readers has also sent me a link to this wonderful symbaloo page full of math web games for young kids.

This resource is first shared by Mattbgomez which is one of my favourite edtech blogs."

If you ask students what their favorite subject is, it’s a rare kid who will say grammar. If you ask teachers the same question, it’s also a rare teacher who will say that s/he enjoys teaching grammar more than any other subject.
