Apple has a new section of their website, dedicated to the iPad in education.
The site included downloadable e-books/manuals/guides for things like using the iOS (mobile operating system devices) in the k-12 classroom. This guide is comprehensive, covering apps, podcasts, iTunes U and more. It’s truly impressive and helpful and a great resource for any teacher.
This site also includes:
- Guided tutorials for apps (videos)
- Learning with the iPad (Educators speaking about how they are using it)
- Apps in Education- a list of educational apps for use in the classroom (they also have a bulk app purchase program for districts considering “iPad carts” or other programs) and sections of the site for teacher-centered an, student centered and accessibility centered apps. There are apps featured for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
