On the last day of the class, the students had their ipad loaded and organized with tools they knew worked for them and also a google doc of other student app recommendations. If your school is going digital this year or you’ve just received a set of class iPads, I hope our student’s choices and kid approved school apps will help make your planning and school iPad app selection easier. Good luck, and we wish you a good start to the new school year.
