My Top Ten iPad Apps from 2015

My Top Ten iPad Apps from 2015 | Teaching Reading Comprehension | Scoop.it
In lieu of writing a reflective blog for this year I thought I would share the top ten iPad Apps that have been impactful in my working with hundreds of schools and teachers around the world this year.

With a focus on a few key types of Apps such as workflow and demonstration apps alongside those that support learning activities such as note taking, research and sketching, here are my top ten iPad Apps from across 2015.

As it says below, those that know or have worked with me will testify, I’m not really one for ‘Apps for a subject’ but there are some Apps which work well everywhere. I have been asked by many for my top ten apps for 2015, so instead, here are my top ten apps for learning that have impact in the schools I have worked with in recent times. Enjoy!

Ana Maria Gallego Ospina's curator insight, April 2, 2017 4:28 PM
It is a fact that when parents read and share books with their children, they will be more able to learn to read and to develop reading skill better than others kids who parents do not read to them. Even though, that reading to children is a good strategy, it is necessary to pay close attention to where children look at while we read. Reading can be more meaningful if we guided kids through the reading and we show to them the pictures, explain what the punctuation means and what others aspects of the text make it unique and significant. This can help to imrpove child´s reading skills, spelling of words and comprehension of text.
