Since then, the company has added a few other similar voice to text apps to its line of desktop and mobile applications.

One question that comes into my inbox or on Twitter a lot lately is one dealing with iPads. Many schools and classrooms all over are investing in these devices and educators want to know how to use them effectively, apps to consider and more. In keeping with the "My Favorite Resources" theme (last week I listed my favorite resources for talking about Twitter) here are my go-to resources when people ask me about iPads in the Classroom.

(formerly Apple Computer Inc.) that run a Unix-like operating system named iOS, often colloquially referred to simply as iDevices.

Jerman, who received his master’s in education for orientation and mobility from UMass Boston in August 2011, has already begun brainstorming ways to utilize the iPad effectively on the job. “I might use the iPad app Pictello for a student on an O&M lesson,” Jerman said, easing into the scenario.
