My colleague Matt Przybylski (Check out his blog here) and I had the opportunity to give another workshop today at the NWCSI/CTABC convention. We had a great turnout again (you can see in the photo that we ran out of official seats!) We were excited to share the core apps that we use on a daily basis on our teaching. Everyone is welcome to download the PDFs and view the Google Doc, which include the app links and reviews (most of which are from teachingwithipad.org).
