I think you could probably divide all the apps in the world into two groups – CREATION apps and CONTENT apps. On this blog I have listed many “creation” apps and I believe these apps have so much power and potential to support and inspire learning in all curriculum areas. While there is a plethora of “content” apps available,many of them are no more than digital photocopied sheets. So, in this section of the blog I have included “content apps” for specific subject areas that harness the power of the iPad. Apps that inspire, engage and  take learning further in ways we could only imagine before the iPad.  Apps that use gaming, movement, and augmented reality – so much more.

For more information about what makes a great app check out this article by Tony Vincent and his app assessment rubric here
