20 Educational iPad Apps Perfect for Every Classroom

January 18, 2017
Here is a list of some useful iPad apps we have been working on over the last few days. We tried to come up with what think are 20 educational apps perfect for every classroom. We were actually inspired by iTunes app list under the same title but the apps included there were definitely not what we expected to see. So we went ahead and dived into our archive and picked out the titles below. We know there are several other wonderful apps to be added here but for practical reasons we only limited our collection to 20 apps. If you are a teacher using or planning to use iPad in your instruction, the list below is definitely a great place to start with. Enjoy
