100+ Educational iPap Apps for Elementary Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Common Core | Scoop.it

"I just learned about this wonderful list of iPad apps for elementary students. Mariana did a great job by compiling all these apps into one handy Listly list. I have gone through all the tiles she has included and found them really interesting. As you can see below, every app is accorded with a short synopsis about the grades it targets, the subject matter and the MB capacity it takes. Some of these apps are also accompanied by video tutorials from YouTube. I invite you to check this selection and share with us if you have any additions. Enjoy. "

Excellent article featuring the thoughts of a school principal as she works with her school community to build new libraries in the junior and senior schools. I love her vision, "We felt very strongly that the library is more than a facilitating process – it has cultural significance which matters. The library can inspire" and "Our approach is unashamedly about inspiring a love of learning". I think the Cabinet of Curiosities concept is a brilliant program in stimulating students' interest and encouraging inquiry.
