I started a class on using iPads in the classroom on Monday and learned so much in just one day. We have a follow-up to the class next Monday. Because I am a lover of bargains I was especially keen on one app that lists other apps that are available for a discounted price for a limited time period. The app is free and is called Appshopper. One of the apps I found that I think will be a big hit is called Dabble, and it is also free right now.
I've seen some chat around the blogs about classroom themes. I try to switch mine up every year, and one I thought was especially good was a theme on Discovery. I created these mock Discover cards for each of the students.
