I think bringing iPads to your classroom is a great idea, I think children will be more interested because technology that they are into is being used for a lesson.  Almost every child has an iPad or some sort of tablet so bringing one or using it in class can also give them learning alternatives or they can help the instructor with some other apps.

We have opened up registration and call to present for the 3rd annual Teaching & Learning with the iPad Conference 2014!  If you are doing great things with the iPad in the classroom submit a proposal.  We are looking for expert experience from all curricular areas and age groups.

I am a language arts teacher for 6th grade honors students who would like to integrate more grammar into my lessons. Are there any good iPad applications you can consider beneficial for the classroom?

All of these suggestions for apps in Kindergarten look wonderful! I can't wait to explore and try them out in my classroom. We were also introduced to a wonderful program in our grade level meeting last week, it's called Prezi. This is a great program K-12, whether you have one iPad or a class set. You're able to control the slide show through your iPad, onto the Smartboard, and students can view it on their iPads or the screen. If they do have their own iPads, there are assessments, surveys, and questions they can answer and complete. Once they answer it sends the responses directly to the teacher, even scoring them. We have used it in Kindergarten with letter naming and first sound assessment. It's not only interactive and engaging, but also saves time and saves on paper consumption. Enjoy exploring! :)

Teaching & Learning with the iPad Conference 2014 information is now out -  Call for proposals and registration open.  Come join us for dozens of concurrent sessions for all age groups and curricular areas!  If you have been doing something innovative in the classroom with one or more iPads, take time to submit a proposal. #tlipad

Being a health and PE teacher I often have had a hard time imagining ways in which an ipad could be used in my classes. I recently found a great app called "1000 Exercises" by Men's and Women's Health that can have a lot of great uses in a health and/or physical education classroom. With this app, teachers and students can create and share workouts based on workout videos. These images and workouts contain male and female options and can be searched using equipment etc as criteria. Users can also set goals and use these created workout programs as steps towards reaching their goals. I think this could be used as a really cool semester-long workout schedule and even for at-home projects.

You could use an AppleTV to link any Apple device to the projector. AppleTV is only $99 and you don't need any extra software to connect to it. You can mirror what is showing on your screen. In my class I use it and I download white board apps to draw up some lecture notes. The whiteboard apps that I like to use is Educreations. Another app you could use is Splash Top. With Splashtop you just install the app on your iPad and the software on your computer and you can control your computer with your iPad wirelessly through the WiFi network. Splash Top is $10.

@Nina, thank you for the information about iTalk, I am going to inquire about it with my tech team. What I would like to know is if they are very low readers how do they know if they are reading it wrong just by listening to theirselves? I have been told that their is a device that can be bought and it will link all of the iPads to a smartboard. Has anyone used this? I would like to know if it is worth trying to get it put in my room.

Hi everyone! I'm a kindergarten teacher looking for the best apps out there to use in my classroom! I would like to find fun educational apps my students can use. I have a few apps I use but would like to know of more that are easy for my kids to use without guidance. I only have one iPad in my classroom and I like to use it as a reward so I like the apps to be something the kids can navigate through with little help. :)
