15 Ways to Use an iPad in Middle & High Schools

I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday. Over that time I have had alot of trial, error and troubleshooting. But now into my second year I have the benefit of being familiar with iPads strengths and weaknesses. All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students.

Below is a copy of my presentation/workshop I gave on Friday October 19th, 2012 to a Middle School who just received a set of iPads.

In this workshop, I focused on some easy to use and powerful apps that I use regularily in a High School. I tried to focus on some quality apps that I have found great to use with students.

I have organized the apps into three categories:
  • Consuming 
  • Collaborating 
  • Producing
