"In what follows, I'd like to offer you a mixed lucky-packet of apps I have discovered since. What melts the whole sticky mass together is that most of them are focused on creative content generation. And they're fun and easy to use. And highly lickable. I love using these apps and recommend all of them. As always, though, please check out the pricing, reviews and ratings on the app store and decide for yourself before you download them."

8 Apps To Turn Your iPad Into A Digital Whiteboard - TeachThought | "elementaryiPadsinlibrary | Scoop.it

Whether you want to lead an in-person class through the iPad screen, or you need remote access to eLearners or others in a school-to-school program, you’ve got options. Below are 8 apps (with various strengths and weaknesses–the only way to know if they truly fit your needs is to try them, unfortunately) that can help you blend and flip your classroom–or just give students more direct access to you, one another, and the content."
