30 essential iPad Apps for the paperless classroom

30 essential iPad Apps for the paperless classroom
iPad Published on May 25th, 2015 | by Mark Anderson I make no apologies for making this an iPad focused post. So many of the schools that I work with have iPads both for students and for educators. The majority of the 30 Apps I’ve chosen are ones I have used extensively myself in the classroom with some new additions which I have seen being used by others to great success. It may be that you have some others that you feel would be a better fit, and if there are, I’d love to read and learn about them from you in the comments. If you are interested in purchasing a clean, non-branded version of this, or a school-branded version of my periodic table of Apps, please let me know.

Making lists of things we’re experts at helps generate ideas, then the stories start to flow!

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " , it dawned on me to compile a list of the popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking.

Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words.

QR Codes in the Classroom — LearnMaker To do this you will need to sign up and login to Aurasma Studio A note before we jump into this section. It’s best to create a single Aurasma account that the whole school can use, because you can only use Auras created or shared with your Aurasma account.

A good tip is to not use anything that has too much white space in the background.
