Some of you may have seen the post previously but I felt like it has such great information that figured you wouldn't mind that I posted it again for this linky.
I want to talk about technology in the classroom. We all know that technology is constantly changing and the latest craze is all about the "i" (iPad, iPod, iPhone). It is my belief that as teachers, we need to keep up with current technology in order to give our students an advantage. I have been owning an iPad for a few years and just purchased an iPad mini. I use my older iPad in my classroom as a computer station. In order to make sure it is educational (and fun) I am constantly looking for apps (preferably free) to help meet the needs of my students. While searching the internet at the beginning of the school year I came across an amazing website that I must share with you.
This website (blog) keeps readers up to date on the latest and greatest apps for all ages, preschool through high school). I have also shared this website with my students' parents. Anybody that has children and uses i technology can benefit greatly from this website!
My favorite part of the website is the Free App Alert! Enter your email address in the area provided (see picture below) in the right column of the website and you will receive daily emails.
Free App Alert!
