iPad Apps

iPads are becoming more popular in the education setting. There are thousands of apps designed for general and special education. The problem is, it can be hard to find good apps. Things to think about when searching for apps include:
  • Is this app educationally relevant?
  • Which student or students could benefit from this app?
  • Does this app help the student work towards one or more of his educational goals?
  • What are the functional skills addressed by this app?

Unfortunately, it is hard to answer these questions without actually playing with the app. Check out the links below to find apps that have been used successfully (at least in my experience) within an educational setting.
