iPad Classroom: Apps for Educators

with Aaron Quigley

Video: Welcome

Hello, I'm Aaron Quigley and welcome to iPads for Educators. iPads are quickly becoming a common classroom device for both teachers and students and the number of educational apps is growing daily. This course is designed to help you navigate the endless lists of educational apps by reviewing a few of my favorites, and the most praised apps that are being used in classrooms across the nation. For each chapter, I've selected only five applications to present. And I often had a hard time narrowing the list. The applications I chose were based on what will help push student achievement, save time for educators, and the overall cost.

Welcome

Hello, I'm Aaron Quigley and welcome to iPads for Educators. iPads are quickly becoming a common classroom device for both teachers and students and the number of educational apps is growing daily. This course is designed to help you navigate the endless lists of educational apps by reviewing a few of my favorites, and the most praised apps that are being used in classrooms across the nation. For each chapter, I've selected only five applications to present. And I often had a hard time narrowing the list. The applications I chose were based on what will help push student achievement, save time for educators, and the overall cost.

Many of the applications we will review, are free. Some offer in-app purchases, and others cost money. This course is designed to help you understand whether or not an application is right for you before you spend money to test it out in your own classroom. Please also check out my closing video, where I have organized all the apps in this course by their alignment to the Bloom's Taxonomy of higher-order thinking, so you can quickly see what apps are appropriate for your students. I hope you enjoy exploring the world of iPads for educators and find a new tool to help your students succeed or save you time.
