"Making use of free iPad apps in the classroom can enable you to diversify your teaching, while providing the opportunity to inspire and get students more engaged in lessons. There  are many different educational apps available, which range from apps like Evernote that allow you to organize your teaching materials, through to interactive whiteboards from Educreations, and Screen Chomp, a screen recording app that can be very useful for teaching lessons on the go. What, then, are some of the best iPads that can be used in the classroom, whether you have multiple tablets, or just one as a teaching tool for different groups?"

Evernote was highlighted in a technology workshop at the MMEA conference.  Recommended organizational tool.  Presenter cautioned against using Evernote for organizing pictures.  He was not able to access his wedding pictures after he loaded them into Evernote!

Remember however that the use of icons and infographics needs to take into account principals of Universal Design so that people of all ability levels can "read", understand and use. JE Sleeth OPC Accessible Design consultants since 1991

I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.
