iPad in Education… annotated bibliography

What’d I’d like to do with this post is to create an annotated bibliography of iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch apps that can be used in education. I want to start a directory of iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch apps that can be used for different content areas and different grade levels.

It seems that the greater majority of the apps available are geared toward elementary age students, which is great, but I’d like to compile a list of apps and potential uses that can be used for primary and secondary students.

If my readers will add a comment with the following information, then I will compile it into an annotated bibliography that can be referenced by everyone. Please include the following in your comment: Name of app, cost, grade levels, content areas, and possible uses in the classroom. Also, try to include apps that can be used in classrooms that have 1, 2, or more devices… unfortunately, most schools don’t provide one computer for all students.

Thank you for your participation!

    This app provides wheels with terms listed for prose, poetry, and rhetoric. When you click on any of the literary terms listed around the wheels, a screen appears with a detailed definition of the term, several examples from literature, and additional questions to ask yourself about how that device is employed in the literature you are currently studying.

  2. Will you continue to share with us your experience in teaching? Would love to hear about it! 🙂

    “Geared” is a great game for students to play on the ipod touch or ipad. It is fun and challenging, but it helps the students problem solve. It is a free download. I highly recommend it for students.

  5. Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the issues. It was definitely informative. Your site is very helpful. Thanks for sharing!
