iPad Apps

I decided to compile a list of free apps that I use in my classroom on the iPad Mini.

General Classroom Use:

  • BrainPOP: quick videos on various topics with quizzes at the end

  • YouTube: so many videos. . . 

  • KeyNote: PowerPoint equivalent for iPad

  • Doceri: Drawing and notes tool

  • Educreations: Drawing and notes tool that has a website.  Videos you create can be emailed and shared online

  • Science 360: Current news articles and videos with an eye catching display

  • ClassDojo: Allows teachers to track student behaviors and generate reports

Earth Science:
  • QuakeFeed: Shows current earthquakes on globe with magnitude

  • EarthNow: Shows current statistics for the globe such as temperature and ocean surface salinity

  • Planets: Current locations of planets and constellations by moving the iPad around

  • The Weather Channel: Need I say more?

  • My Radar: Current radar maps

Life Science:

  • Pangea Safari: Simple simulation of ecology with producers, herbivores, and carnivores
