iPad Apps for English teaching and learning
In our prospective iPad project in our English and Media faculty we are currently trailing the best apps to use in the teaching of English and Media Studies. Here is a useful top ten list (with a few extras with honourable mentions!): Pages: The basic word processing package that is really essential for any and all types of writing. Easily transportable by email to Dropbox etc. with the capacity to convert to Microsoft Word if required. Safari: The essential internet browser for the iPad for all required research essential to presentations etc. Dropbox: The best Cloud app to save work and create an accessible area to share work, ideas etc. iBooks: The essential e-reader and book library for the iPad. ExplainEverything: A brilliant app for individual or group presentations. iFPoems: A fantastic anthology of poems is available on the app. iMovie: A smooth and easy app that allows students to create films instantly, with an array of editing facilities. I hope these ideas are useful.
