The Common Core standards state: 

"To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new."

This post shares a few of the many resources available at PBS LearningMedia (at no cost). The focus here is on strengthening media literacy. Clicking through to PBS will provide you with access to over 30,000 resources.

Great advice on apps AND a systematic approach for how one goes about integrating the iPad into ealry literacy instruction.

A guided approach for using apps.  It is nice to see support for a low-tech first approach.  Understanding before application enhances the learning process for any age.
