I stumbled upon an amazing IOS application named "The Hare And The Tortoise" based on the fable of the ancient Greek writer Aesop.Amazing illustration, karaoke option with text below the videos that last more than 4' and many puzzles with 6,12 or 20 pieces.Even though this amazing application is available for iPhone too,it is the ipad version that helps the parent and the kid to truly enjoy its services.
You can download it straight from the Appstore

Actually, I am not a student so, it's not possible to use I Pad in classroom but I am using it in my office. My most Favourite applications are iQue and Skype. Here, IQue includes great creativity with various ideas and also includes many other applications While Skype is best communication application which has effective features to talk with any other person and also make video chat.
