iPad Apps for Creative and Fun Learning Presented by Local Teacher

I was listening to one of my teachers present today to my faculty of 40 and thought that the apps shared were so good that I would share them with our Unlock the Teacher blog readers.  I feel blessed to work in a building with such creative energy and passion for teaching and work with a professional development team at Unlock the Teacher LLC that I sometimes have to pause…and remember to whom much is given, much will be expected.  Thank you to all the teachers out there who sacrifice and share their time and talent for our children…our future!

  1. I also have another app to share:http://www.superflashcard.com/#!store. I introduce the app for my students and we often use it to create and share flashcard for each lesson. My students are excited with its games and quizes, they even show me their result on the app and their own flashcards.
