I am often asked what apps are best for education. I promote creation apps over consumption apps. Consumption apps are generally drill and practice. There is a place for drill and practice on the iPad or any tablet, but I don’t believe it should be the only use. These devices should be used for creating material much more than they should be used for drill and practice, even at early years. Check out this blog for ideas from Ms Lirenman, a Grade 1 teacher and how she uses creation tools in her classroom.
