7 Apps I Like
First of all - I love AppAdvice - it gives you daily lists of the best/top apps in a number of categories (including education) and lets you know when apps go for free.
Creative Book Builder is easy to use with students - really intuitive. Click here for an example of a student-created book.
Dropbox is a great file sharing and file storing resource - the public folder can be used to share and collect assignments with students.
Comic Life allows students to create their own comic strips and graphic novels. I think it is much easier to use than the computer program.
I love this app and used it for many assignments this last spring. Students of all ages can use to create original puppet shows....effective and fun. I used it for group projects, culminating assignment and for assessment.
There are several MathTappers apps for use with different math concepts. They can be used with a variety of levels. They are free too :-). Great for helping students gain mastery over a concept.
Just an elegant search engine that eliminates the need to hunt through books and the internet for research. It pulls together articles, video and images into one web.
