IPad Apps for the classroom

We have a set of IPads that we share between 2 classrooms.  There is enough for one-to-one use when working with just one class.  Other times, we have the students team up for work in small groups. 
I am linking up with Mrs. Wills Kindergarten to share some apps that haved worked well with our students. Be sure to click on the link above to check out what others have shared.

  1. The focus of Apple’s two latest television spots for the iPad and iPad mini seems to be more on the apps that are built for the devices more than anything else. Throughout both spots we are shown a barrage of apps while adjectives flash on screen every so often to announce words such as “bright,” “loud” and “alive.” Click Here for more info.
