iPad for Teachers

Feb 11, 2011

I teach pre-service and in-service teachers Technology and Education at the University of West Alabama in Livingston, AL. I am working in an iPad focus group to see how I can use this tool with my students and how they can use it with theirs.


It is a great way to get ideas from your PLN and share your ideas with them.


CNN App for iPad

Great videos and current events information


Angry Birds

It’s fun first of all and second it does teach some great physics concepts.



I love the paintings on this app and they have a quiz mode to test your knowledge, too.


CBS Sunday Morning

These stories are often missed, but the topics are wonderful.


Audible – Audio books, original audio shows, ad-free podcasts, and more.

Audiobooks for everyone! I love these for students and for teachers.


Geocaching Classic

Great way to teach science, math, and social studies concepts while doing an electronic scavenger hunt.



Similar to twitter but the conversations stay together.


Mad Libs

This game/activity translates really well to the ipad from the paper/pencil version I used to play as a kid. Great for teaching parts of speech and vocabulary.
