Know any good apps?

We get asked this question almost daily.  There's a wealth of resources - blogs and websites you can find under the iDevice category here, or you can do your own searches.  How about having a great list in one place?  This post title links to the handouts from four MACUL iPad presentations on the MITS website.  First take a look at the handouts for choosing apps, App-Related Websites. Then check out the list of apps for Reading &Writing, Math & Science, and Communication & Visual Supports.

Of course, these lists aren't comprehensive, but a great place to start.  Remember, there's even apps to help you find other, related apps.  Check out Discovr for suggestions of apps similar to ones you like.

When you've had success with apps in education, please share your knowledge at Teacher Recommended iOS apps, a new project of MITS that seeks to match specific apps to learner challenges and content area.  Thanks to MITS and Peter Schaafsma for great iPad presentations.
