5 iPad apps for the Productive 21st Century Student | iPad Insight

5 iPad apps for the Productive 21st Century Student | iPad Insight | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

"When I was at school, I struggled badly with random, un-filed bits of paper, leaky ink cartridges in my Parker Pen and terrible hand writing (as well as chronic laziness and an addiction to Cricket). I’m sure this approach to my organisation affected my school work. If I would have grown up in the iPad age I think things would have been different. The following 5 apps have been tried and tested by me and my students and rank highly as apps which work brilliantly to keep work organised in the cut and thrust of a busy school day."
