As an instructional technology coach, I am always looking for apps with educational value. Mobile devices definitely have a place in education and by providing teachers with a wealth of apps early on, hopefully their students will utilize the full potential of these tools. These apps are what I load on our districts iPod carts before they roll into schools. These apps allow students to create their own content, research information, share resources among students, and participate in educational gaming. (Note: This list was designed for use with middle school learners)

Evernote – capture notes and sync across all devices. Stay organized.

Easy way for students to turn in notes or images created on the iPods… syncs to an online account for you to access…
