Begin here: By all means bookmark Bloom's Taxonomy of Apps - there is a k-12 (not annotated, and largely over grade 5) list of apps, a page for each level on the hierarchy - and also K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy, which covers elementary grades. iPad Apps and Bloom's Taxonomy at Langwitches Blog is also a place to begin. Highlighted: The iPad As... - sensible listing of apps organized by iPad learning goals. You will probably want to add additional goals as you build your program, but this is a great listing to use when starting up.

In an interview earlier this year Education Secretary Michael Gove hinted that he would like to see mobile phones banned in schools. Claiming they lead to "disruption" and can be used for bullying, Mr Gove bracketed mobile phones and iPods in the same category as weapons such as knives.

They were excited to see what they could do and spent time taking pictures and playing around with the free apps. I showed them how to log into Dropbox and Evernote and how to log off those apps as well. iP@ds in my classroom - Update 1 #Edchat #EdTech #Education
