Looking for the hottest iPad apps around the education world? Well, Claire Knight over at Education TechNews shares her pick for the must have 7 iPad apps. Take a look:
Free Books gives students and teachers access to more than 23,000 books for free. And users also benefit from bells and whistles, including automatic bookmarking, author pages and nighttime reading modes. Cram lets users upload their study notes onto digital flashcards and multiple choice practice tests. Students can also use pre-loaded study guides from Quizlet. gFlashPro includes a wide variety of trivia in a flashcard format. The app tracks users performance and can be used in landscape or portrait mode. Bonus: No ads! PI83 Graphing Calculator saves users money. At only $.99, it is much more affordable than a traditional graphing calculator. The app is designed to replace the TI83 model and features more than 100 math functions. Sundry Notes lets users import pdf files, search with Google and Wikipedia, draw graphs and make recordings — and it’s free. Dropbox allows users to save, share, take and access their documents, photos and videos anywhere. Make frequently used files a “favorite” for fast, off-line viewing. eClicker lets teachers poll students during lessons, and it gives feedback in real time. The app also lets teachers share questions with other teachers via BlueTooth. (This app is designed to be used in conjunction with eClicker Host.)
