Using feedback from schools in Edinburgh who have embedded iOS technology (iPad, iPod Touch) into the curriculum, we have put together some recommended apps for learning and teaching. We have grouped the apps into curricular areas and other identifiable groups. They are in no particular order and include a variety of free and paid-for apps.
All of the apps listed come recommended by teachers and pupils. The list is not exhaustive, but offers a starting point for those new to the technology and will highlight some less familiar apps for those who have been using iOS devices for a while.
The apps that allow for content creation are some of the most powerful for transforming learning and teaching, allowing students to demonstrate evidence of their learning. Teachers have found that they return to these apps time and time again and are excited about what they and their student can create on the device.
We know you will have fun learning with them!
