The 4th grade at my school will be piloting ipads in the classroom this fall. Each student will receive an ipad for use in regular and enrichment classes. Please share apps you have used and ideas for ipad technology in the classroom. We have been doing a great deal of research on this topic, but it would be great to hear from other teachers who use technology in the classroom. I plan to share throughout the pilot.

Hey Flo,
I have one of my elementary school just bought 6 iPads and we are also searching for some great apps for the classroom. I will share our google doc we created for our teachers. I need an email address to share it with you.

I have been spearheading the research for iPads in our school and was introduced to an amazing resource for apps in the classroom. Go to this link -

or Google iREAD then click & dropdown > Technology click & dropdown > iREAD and a little ways down is says "Database of iOS Apps we Recommend" You'll be amazed!! Escondido School District was an early adopter of the iOS program and put this together with their staff.

I've also been given www.bestappsforkids.com and http://blogs.rockingham.k12.va.us/lpike?s=ipad+apps

Good luck!

My school has iPads in all of the classrooms from preschool through sixth grade. Some of my favorite things are having the students create stories with something like StoryKit, reviewing parts of speech with MadLibs, doing cartoons with Toontastic and math with Nutty Numbers.
