Summer Moeckel , Victoria Elementary, Victoria Many teachers have a tendency to get "app happy", loading student iPads with massive amounts of educational games. I tend to have the opposite approach in my classroom, "quality not quantity". I have about 15 go to apps on my student iPads that have completely transformed the way I teach and the way students learn. Strip design, Morfo Booth, Pic Collage, Puppet Pals, Flascardlet, and Good Notes are some of my favorites just to name a few. Teachers need to realize that we are preparing our students for jobs that don't even exist yet. In this new digital age, I have taught myself how to teach smarter, not harder. I would love to be able to share my one-to-one iPad experiences with others.
