IEAR – Education Apps Review by Educators


IEAR is a grassroots community of educators who are examining the value of educational apps. Though not specifically focused on the iPad, IEAR has started an iPad special interest group and several authors have published iPad related articles. For example, iPads in science, iPad for content creation and a number of app reviews. You can search for iPad related items in the field under “Roam the Halls.”
