As the school year is about to start, it's no surprise Mr. Makhlouf sent me this link to the AASL's Best Apps for Teaching and Learning. A few of them are already highlighted in this website, but many are new, so please do check it out. There are book apps (and I'm guessing they would be the complete books, too, because none of them are free. Prices range from $2.99 to $14.99.); Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) apps (and most are free except Operation Math is $2.99 and Simple Physics is $1.99); organization and management apps (all are free and most should be familiar); social sciences apps (all are $4.99 except News-O-Matic and MyCongress which are FREE!); and content creation apps (and all are FREE except GarageBand which is $4.99). So before you head off for the first day of school, take a look and see if you get any more ideas for this 2013-14 school year. With two iPad carts and many teachers who have their own iPads, I believe there are many possibilities to enhance what we're already doing well. Imagine the possibilities and keep checking back here. ;-)
