Today while I was lounging in Victoria Park, I took my iPad and started thumbing around through the apps I have. I was really surprised to find out that I have many apps installed but only some are being used on a regular basis. So it dawned on me to compile a list of some "must have" apps that teachers should have access to. All of these apps are great for organizational tasks such as : task management, bookmarking, note-taking...and media storage.
Bear in my mind that this compilation is based on my personal preferences. having reviewed over 500 apps I feel like my "apping" experience is mature enough to enable me to share with you some recommendations that you might find useful in your daily work as a teacher or student. I limited the list to only 11 titles, I know I have missed a lot but the ones below are really indispensable.
