Six Weeks of iPad Apps for School (Or 46 apps I've liked)

Tomorrow marks six weeks since I officially launched my blog devoted to iPad apps for students and teachers. And since I won't win any awards for clever titles, I just called it iPad Apps for School. Since I launched the blog I've published 56 posts which is better than one per day. In the slideshow below I've organized 46 of the reviewed apps. The slideshow is organized in the following order: math apps, science apps, social studies apps, language arts apps, video apps, and productivity apps. Not all of the apps in this slideshow are free, but most of them are.

You may want to hit the full screen button to make it easier to read the text on the slides. (This is not how I format slides for presentations that I deliver live). 

The Week in Review - An Email Machine

Good morning from snowy Greenwood, Maine. This week I had a great time working with some teachers at Assabet Valley Technical School in Massachusetts and then I followed that up with three consecutive nights of teaching my webinar series Google Drive and The Common Core. To support all of the learners participating in the webinars I've been spending a lot of time emailing in responses students' questions. It's been so good to hear that teachers are trying out new things that they've picked up from the webinar. I've had a lot of requests to offer another round of webinars and I will be making an announcement about that shortly.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. 26 Ways to Use Comics in the Classroom
2. Simple Machines - A Fun Game for Learning About Physics
3. 13 Good Resources for Social Studies Teachers
