I’m delivering some iPad training to a school tomorrow, so thought it might be useful to collate some of the links I’ve been putting together for the session. The session is concentrating mainly on teachers using the iPads for their own professional use, rather than being used as a classroom resource, but a lot of the apps below will be suitable for use by students too. I’ll do another post sometime of great apps for different subject areas.

Apps for Autism: Communicating on the iPad For severely autistic people, communication is often impossible, leaving them unable to convey what they want or need. But as Lesley Stahl reports, touch-screen apps designed for tablet computers like the iPad are now giving autistic people new ways to express themselves, some for the first time.

The following script is from "Apps for Autism" which aired on Oct. 23, 2011. Lesley Stahl is the correspondent. Karen Sughrue, producer.

Review Of Educational iPad Apps
iPad in the Classroom: Round 2 | The History Channel This Is Not… Last time I posted on this topic I included some brief videos (extremely blurry videos, I will admit) that displayed how I planned to employ note taking software, dictation software, and geography/mapping apps with my students. In the time since I’ve written that post I’ve managed to employ SimpleNote a bit, but have found the most functionality in using the iPad for my own reading and research. While I find SimpleNote handy for jotting down ideas for reading questions, for resources to use in upcoming lessons, and for ideas that strike me during meetings, I haven’t applied it directly to taking notes about student performance. Instead, I’ve been trying to be really diligent about making observations and collecting my thoughts about students in a series of Google Docs organized according to class period. I managed to stay on top of this really well during the first week, but have been a but more intermittent in my updates since then.
The iPad has finally made its international debut, meaning that thousands and thousands of new users will be enjoying Apple's latest device over the coming weeks. With the launch of the iPad comes the international launch of the iPad App Store, making it possible for us to play Words With Friends with our friends in Australia. There are already thousands of apps available in the App Store, and with the exception of apps focused on media services like Netflix, ABC or Pandora, most are also available internationally. We've been fortunate enough to have the iPad in our screen-smudging paws for the past two months and in that time we've surveyed well over 100 apps and games for the new platform. While this list could easily be four or five times as long as it is, we wracked our brains and decided to pick ten of our favorite iPad apps for the new iPad owner. You've seen our list of ten must-have apps, now tell us your picks!
After providing a few minutes to finish up homework, Juli Brown has some instructions for her students. “Here’s what I need you to have out on your desk: your literature book and your iPad,” Brown says. The Basehor-Linwood school district spent $126,000 to put an Apple iPad in the hands of every Basehor-Linwood Middle School sixth-grader this year, and on Monday those iPads were the only tool students needed in Brown’s reading class. No notebooks, pencils or highlighters were necessary.
Umami is a new iPad app that aims to bring an enhanced, second-screen experience to broadcast and cable TV programming. Second screen apps are becoming standard fare for networks. Using audio fingerprinting technology, these apps can tell what you're watching — and provide an updated, customized experience based on the show. At the Mashable Media Summit last week, second screen experiences were highlighted as one of the major media trends of 2012. Until now, however, most of these experiences have been crafted specifically around one show or network. This requires users to download individual apps for the shows or networks they frequently watch. Umami Wants to Be the Ultimate Second Screen App for iPad
The Arrival of the iPad - The Top 10 Everything of 2010 In April, Steve Jobs launched his iPad. And it was good. The iPad was not the first eReader or Tablet on the market nor was it as multi-functional as the iPhone (you can't make phone calls with an iPad).
Apple iPad 2 - The Top 10 Everything of 2011 Thinner, lighter and more powerful than its predecessor, the mighty iPad easily sustained its reign as the king of tablets this year. Though the competition appears to be heating up with the introduction of a fleet of Android tablets ranging in size, price and features, Apple's venerable touchscreen wonder still has plenty of sunny skies ahead of it. It may have the best apps and interface out there right now, and the sheer enormity of its mind share keeps just about everyone equating the concept of tablet computing first and foremost with the iPad.
