Editor’s note: Contributor Brad Spirrison is the managing editor of mobile app discovery services Appolicious, AndroidApps.com and AppVee. With this post, he continues an annual tradition of picking the best iOS apps of the year.

Apple's handheld and tablet devices can be valuable for teaching and learning.

One of my favorite apps is Puppet Pals. See why this app receives my full attention. Our school is fortunate enough to have a set of traveling iPads for checking out. In addition, I have a set of six (one is personal) that I keep secured in the classroom and use on a regular basis. Of course, when I first received the iPads (thank you, PTA!), I immediately went on a hunt for apps that would help with literacy instruction.
