90 iPad Apps Teachers should Try This School Year ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"With the abundance of apps in the app store comes the question of what apps are really worth using with students in class and how to get your hands on them.A teacher who has a busy schedule with increasing workload in school is highly unlikely to have the time and energy to go online and sift through piles of apps to find the ones he/she wants to use. This is a time consuming task ."

Hmm why do reporters feel the need to "sex" things up so? Learning "from" a tablet computer, "pioneering a revolutionary method of learning", "cheating listening to music" I'm not sure of any of this.

The tablet computers segment is growing fast and is now certain to overtake PC sales soon. Naturally a lot of computing, especially at the home, is shifting to tablets. Even at work, some segments of the workforce can do all their tasks on a tablet. For more ‘serious’ ‘heavy duty’ work needs, tablets are merging with desktops and laptops to present completely new form factors. Two of them are shown here. One is a hybrid, which can be used as a laptop or a tablet, trying to give you the best of both.
