So what would you recommend as the essential classroom apps? I’ll think about it and put my own post up on that soon, but TeachThought has come up with some teacher app essentials and then Inquiry Learning essential apps. If you need to get started then these apps are worthy of consideration. If you are already up and running with your iPad thinking and learning in education then you can look at them and see what you think. Are there any missing? Are there ones you prefer not to use? My year 9 students have certainly made excellent use of Google Earth for their latest presentations which were about discovering Quebec and presenting it in French and English. Those who had mastered the Google Earth tools came up with stunning but very informative presentations which had everyone looking and learning. Some apps just know how to be the best and some apps have ready appeal for students. Others are worth persevering with until you learn to get the best out of them. If you haven’t been to the TeachThought site before, I highly recommend it. It is very practical in its approach and always comes up with good resources and ideas for the classroom.
