Vol.#24: iPad Apps for the English Language Arts Classroom

20130402-190721.jpg
Our school has recently acquired a cart of iPads for check out to use with students, and in anticipation I wrote (and have since received) a grant for Apple TV for my classroom.

I’d read things like this and this and this and this all about the uses of Apple TV in the classroom, and was stoked to get started.

Then…it arrived.

And there was paralysis by analysis.

am was unsure of where to start my students on the actual iPads. I knew I could start…

. . . a n y w h e r e .

However, it seemed like general online advice and Apps we already had were more focused on math and content areas like social studies, at least thus far in my experience. I needed some advice on what Apps would be a good starting place for my language arts classroom.

I love following #engchat on Twitter Monday nights (and #edchat Tuesday nights) but had missed several weeks lately due to my Kenan Fellowship deadlines. However, I happened to check in last night.

Boy, am I glad I did.

The archive of the entire chat is here, but I decided I really wished to compile a concise aggregate of ELA iPad Apps from it. Specifically, I wanted the iPad recommendations from English Language Arts teachers during the 4/1/2013 #engchat “distilled and purified” from the 58 pages of archived tweets to, as it turns out, these 40 individual tweets about Apps and their use.

And if I wanted that (and the alphabetical, user-friendly list of all Apps mentioned that follows)… I thought others might perhaps, as well.

So, without further ado:
