iPad Apps Tip: How to Find Educational App Collections in the App Store


There are thousands of educational apps in the App Store and a number of ways to search for them. I’m preparing for an iPad workshop with elementary school teachers later today and will be showing and sharing a few of these methods. For example, Apple has four organized categories of apps that you can get to quickly with the right links. These collections are:

Special Education
Apps for Learning to Read

Apps for Learning Life Science

Apps for Learning Math

Special thanks to a fellow ADE for the recent reminder about these educational app collections.
