We particularly focus on iPad and Macs as these are by far the most popular gadgets among teachers and students (please note that we have never been paid by Apple to review any of their products or apps) From reviews of iOS apps and tools to guides and posts on how to effectively operate your i(OS) devices, our Apple in Education section here in EdTech and mLearning has tons of resources to help you make the best of Apple products in your instruction.
