The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack - 8 views

    "The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. Therefore, I will do my best to include both a pay & free app for each objective."

Using an iPad in History teaching | Kerry Turner - 8 views

  •  
    "After having become familiar with various apps, I've decided that it is time to put my bulky laptop aside and use the iPad almost exclusively in my history lessons.
