I had a birthday. I have an iPad.
(Apple has a back to school deal on right now, by the way. Homeschoolers qualify!)
Now I need recommendations. There are a lot of apps, as I’ve discovered with integrating my iPhone into my life. The iPad is opening up a huge swath of possibilities, though: Assignments, Research, Reference.
I did find an excellent UK website that has a breakdown of apps by area: iPads in Education. Literacy apps, Sports, History, Mind Mapping, and categories. Emerging Ed Tech also has a great list of apps that teachers actually use and find useful.
I’m still buried deep in questions.
iStudiezPro, for instance, looks like a brilliant way to mesh schedules with to do lists. Can I assign them to my kids from the iPad to their iPods? If I can, I’m a happy mama.
Cells and Cell Structures: brilliant learning, or gimmicky shine and no substance?
Are Pages and Numbers worth the $10 tag?
