50+ Great iPad Apps for Students

After publishing 30 iPad Apps Every Teacher Should Have  I curated another list of iPad apps but this time for  students. This list is subjective and is based on my own experience as a teacher and as an educational technology researcher and blogger. I included only the apps I think students REALLY need to have some familiarity with in order to better leverage the educational potential of iPad. Just as I said before no matter how many apps I include here there will always be some missing.
