The APP’s that are available for this device are many and often free. For education the iPad certainly is a game changer. It is easy to use and some example apps shown here. The portability between machines still remains an issue however the software, iTunes, to handle all of the files and uploads is getting better. In a school context this will be an interesting developmen and would be good to see how schools will manage apps and so on. The battery weight and size is perfect for educational use.
What are your favourite apps for the iPad. Interstringly mobile apps allow you to increase the size to iPad screen but there are iPad specfic applications. For example the Piano app now has duette feature….which is quite cool. Now to learn the Piano….argh.
