Below is a YouTube clip of my favourite Podcast, iPad Today from the Twit network hosted by Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane. In this episode they explore apps that are useful for students going back to school, but all of these apps are useful for teachers as well. Apps that are highlighted include Evernote, Learnist, Drafts and ThinkBook.Pin It
Recently Apple had it’s Education event in New York, where it showcased iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U. To view the Apple Education Event I encourage you to view the presentation by visiting http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/1201oihbafvpihboijhpihbasdouhbasv/event/index.html.
I have also embedded the latest episode of iPad today where Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane discuss the new iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U. The whole episode is not devoted to these applications, but does contain reviews and tips that you might find helpful. This episode also includes the review of Onlive Desktop. If you are in the US or UK you will be very interested in this if you have wanted to have a Windows 7 experience on your iPad and want to have access to Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Why does Australia seem to miss out on all the new cool stuff?
iPad Today a show produced by the TWiT Netcast Network is a fantastic show that I watch to keep up with the latest iPad apps. Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane review apps and bring you the latest iPad news. It is a light hearted show presented in a fun way. If you are new to the iPad world I would strongly encourage you to look over their past episodes. I have included two more recent episodes that have focussed on education related apps below.
Episode 58 below has a focus on accessibility apps. Accessibility apps are apps that can be useful for students with learning needs.
Episode 59 below has a focus on back to school apps.
