Teaching in depth with Apps

Often when it comes to using iPads in the classroom, many of us want to get the technology rolling but may not know where to begin.  This chart (credited) demonstrates Bloom's Taxonomy in an app realated way.

Also, a great online resource for Bloom's Apps:

"Are other districts using iPads?"
Apple credits over 600 districts with an iPad program last year, but with so many people taking on the challenge in such a short time, information about "how to do it" hasn't evolved quick enough to keep up with demand.  There is no set guide on the one way to get iPads working in the classroom, but there are a number of teachers and administrators trying. Here is a website with a list of schools trying tablet computing:

Mathematics Apps (using the iTunes store)

Algebra Touch (free edition) -

Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch refreshes your skills using techniques only possible on your iOS device.  Say you have x + 3 = 5.
