iPods in Education: Starter Kit (part 4)

Sep 13, 2010

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 iPods 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)
