I got an iPad from Donorschoose this summer and love using it to project images, problem of the day for morning work, and even videos through my projector. I also love using it for reading centers. I organize my apps by subject and tel the kids they can use any app they want. I hide the camera and Safari and tell them not to use them – luckily my kids are super honest! Because my kids use it everyday, I am always on the lookout for quality educational apps. One that never fails me is the Elfishki series of interactive stories.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
