The easy way to find good apps for your kids There are plenty of kids apps available for the tablets and phones in our house, but finding the good ones that have educational value or challenge my kids to think takes some legwork. So I'm always looking to see what other kids are playing and asking friends about the apps they've loaded for their kids. And there are also helpful tools I use to narrow down the choices, especially when I'm on the hunt for a particular type of app. The Common Sense Media site and WeWantApps! iOS app (free on iTunes), which launched this week, are good places to start. WeWantApps! Once I have a short list, I take a look at the reviews. Common Sense Media has real, detailed reviews. WeWantApps! Taking the time up front to find the best choices for your kids will make a huge difference in the quality of apps they end up playing.

Apps in Education Medieval Math Battle game goes gold for iOS and Android We wrote about the Medieval Math Battle game in October: aimed at 9-12 year-olds, it turns maths into a monster-packed roleplaying game. And very fun it is too. That game was “freemium” – free to play, but using in-app purchases to unlock different sections (e.g. subtraction, multiplication and division) as well as buy virtual gold for upgrades. Now the game’s developer SpinFall has launched Medieval Math Battle Gold, which dumps the in-app purchases aspect: “All operators are unlocked, plus earn twice the gold after every battle” as its app store listing puts it. Medieval Math Battle Gold costs £1.99 for iPhone and iPad on Apple’s App Store, and £1.87 for Android on the Google Play store.
Back to School – Top 5 iPad Apps for Educators What apps should I use? The number one question when an educator receives an iPad. Whether it is training colleagues with the technology, or educators finding their own way, the ‘best’ apps always find a place in the discussions. With that in mind, these 5 applications may help with integration of the iPad into the classroom. ‘Introduces you to the iPad, exploring the working parts and touchscreen interface. The most impressive feature of this app is that the user cannot move on unless they tap the right area of the screen that relates directly to iPad functionality. ‘Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations. Explain everything has the added advantage of students being able to show their work with annotations and also have a sense of pride as it is easily displayed to the rest of the class. Put simply, Socrative is a superb ‘assessment for learning’ tool. Like this: Like Loading...
An Apple for the teacher: are iPads the future in class? | Teacher Network Blog | Guardian Professional I'm a self-confessed Apple fanatic so I was curious to see how iPads and iPods could be used successfully in a primary school. I was sure they would inspire and encourage the teachers I work with to take a chance and think outside their comfort zone and embrace new technology. But before our school jumped on the iPad bandwagon, I wanted to determine how these devices were going to offer a better learning experience compared to the laptops that we already had in our school. My 'iPad journey' began approximately a year ago, when I bought an iPad 2. I was hooked. My then three-year-old daughter, was also showing an interest. Having seen the huge potential of the iPads as an educational tool, I decided to investigate the pros and cons of iPads compared to laptops in the classroom. In my mind these were the pros: • Ease and speed of use and accessibility: The touch interface and app system on the iPad makes it easy to access learning tools. And here are the cons:
