So you are looking for some new apps to recommend for your students and kids, well I just finished curating a list of some awesome iPad apps for you. I am adding this list to the educational iPad apps section I have here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. These apps cover a wide variety of topics and can be used for different purposes. From presentation making to creating engaging drawings and doodles, you will definitely find an app to recommend to your students. Enjoy
