The iPads are Coming… (they’re here!)

It should come as no surprise to those who know me that: (1) I’ve had an iPad for nearly a year now, and me being me, (2) I’ve also been exploring ways to integrate it into instruction. I did my first iPad workshop on Wednesday and will also pilot an iPad project sometime before the end of the year (which I will chronicle here).

I had a fun time exploring apps to download and purchase. The full list is below (and yes, I know it’s a long list…I sort of got carried away). Of course, I’m already maintaining a running list of new apps to explore. The headings correspond to the folders I organized them into…some of which were plainly arbitrary on my part, admittedly.

Have a recommendation for me? Ideas are welcome!
