- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Aaron Quigley, and welcome to iPad Classroom: Apps 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 list 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 on it just to test it out in your own classroom. Please also check out my closing video where I've organized all the apps in this course 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 these iPad applications with me, and find a new tool to help your students succeed, or to save you time.
