Apps!

Everyday I'm asked, what Apps should I install on our iPads. Here's my list of recommended apps.

Listed below are a number of apps that can help you get started using iPads in the classroom. These apps are not listed by grade or subject area, but instead by category. They are apps that we consider “open ended” and can be used for student creation and demonstration of learning. These are just a few recommendations - there are always alternatives. 

*When iPad Language is French, these apps translate into French also
