"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Perhaps you’re starting an after school program.

If you are ready to bring coding into your classroom these coding websites and apps are worth checking out. On this list you’ll find a wide range of tools. Some are perfect for younger students and others will work best in classrooms where teachers have lots of experience with computer science.

25 iOS Secret Features You Likely Didn’t Know About | Redmond Pie

25 iOS Secret Features You Likely Didn’t Know About | Redmond Pie | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
While it’s true that iOS started out as a relatively basic operating system for the iPhone and iPod touch, the software and its list of features have grown and matured over the years. Nowadays iOS is feature rich, so much so that we’re willing to bet that there are quite a few things hidden within iOS that lots of people don’t know even exist.

With that in mind we set about putting together a list of features and tools within iOS that we didn’t think everyone would know existed. Initially, we kicked the idea off with a handful of items for our list, but eventually it grew into a list of no fewer than 25 tips and features that we hope will surprise at least some of you, ranging from hidden Siri commands to special Emoji.
