In 2013, I wrote a post entitled The Best Free K-12 iPad Apps You Might Never Have Heard Of! These were some great apps for the classroom. However, they are not as new as they once were and you have probably heard of most, if not all, of them by now. So, I decided to revisit this idea and give it a new twist.
This time around I thought it would be fun to crowdsource some ideas from teachers who are using iPads in the classroom right now. So, I put together a quick Google Form that you can use to submit all the apps that just don’t get talked about enough. You will also find a box on the form to include a brief description of how you use that app in the classroom.
Are you interested in seeing the apps that others have submitted? Me too! That’s why I have made the results publicly viewable for anyone who wants to see them. The links to both the survey, as well as the spreadsheet of results, are included below:
Not sure what to submit? It’s easier than you might think, and the best thing is, there is no wrong answer! Simply take a look at your iPad and see what apps you have that others might not know about. The chances are high that you actually have quite a few. I have a lot of apps on my iPad but people show me new ones all the time. I love exploring these apps and hearing about how teachers are using them in the classroom.
So, I look forward to seeing the apps that you submit. The links have already been shared on Twitter a few times, so even if you can’t think of anything to submit right now, you can still take a look at the apps that have already been submitted.
Here are the links one more time:
Feel free to share this post, the spreadsheet, or the submission form with any of your colleagues. Together we will create something that we can all use for enhancing teaching and learning in an iPad classroom. Here are some of my favorites that I shared with educators recently.
