** PLEASE NOTE **
Some apps are free and some require payment. Please double-check iTunes for the most up-to-date information about price. Some apps will also require you to create accounts with other vendors (separate from your iTunes account).
When is free bad? Well, free apps are usually limited in scope or they contain advertising. In general, we stay away from free apps in the classroom because of the ads. We don't want students clicking on a linked ad and trying to purchase something. Additionally, these ads may not always be appropriate for students. Teachers and administrators are free to download as many free apps as they want, they just need to be aware of whether it has advertising, etc.
One more thing about free: Some free apps like Chicktionary and Puppet Pals are great! However, they have add-on content that is sold in the app. Some of those add-ons (more levels, more characters) are great, though, so I've included those apps anyway.
Must have apps to start with!
It's up to you on what to purchase. For the purposes of this training, please download MathBoard Addition, and ., , , ,
Another must-have app is Appshopper - It's a great app that will show you information on updates to iPads as well as Apps that are FREE!!!
