"iPad Educators is a great website with the tagline "Redefining Teaching, From Dubia to the World." The website is run by four educators and is non-commercial, which is great because their app reviews are not paid for by the app developers (as I have discovered, many app review sites get paid to write their reviews). iPad Educators also has featured articles and interviews with iPad educators."

The Flipped Classroom : Education Next

The Flipped Classroom : Education Next | GETTING F.I.T. (Free Internet Tools) FOR TEACHERS | Scoop.it

While there is no one model, the core idea is to flip the common instructional approach: With teacher-created videos and interactive lessons, instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home, in advance of class. Class becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning.

The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog

The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog | GETTING F.I.T. (Free Internet Tools) FOR TEACHERS | Scoop.it

"I was recently inspired by Sean Junkins’ (@sjunkins) periodic table of iPad Apps. I thought it was a really useful too – being able to map Apps to activities – I thought it a really helpful too. With that in mind, I wanted to be able to use it as a poster myself but whilst I thought it was great I didn’t however quite agree with some of the App choices. I wanted different categories too that related more to the use I thought would be useful in UK schools, hence I created my own version from scratch in Photoshop which I share below."
