iPad Apps for Primary

Everyone's been desperate to hear about the apps we're using. I present the current list for our primary department, with iTunes links. All prices are for the UK App Store.

As I said in my last post, I simply cannot at this point contemplate the effort of capturing for you how every one of these apps are being used in all the classes and stages that they're being used in. I'm no longer the expert. Unlike previous generations of school technology, it's no longer the computing teacher driving technology adoption. It's the subject teachers themselves - what a refreshing change!

Over time, I hope to develop a few case studies of particularly broadly used apps but I hope this is useful to some of you.

Just look at the length of that list. That's a revolution in itself.

Also, we decided that we didn't think it fair to wait for the Volume Purchase Program to arrive in the UK. Now that I have this list together, we're going to figure out a process of paying for more copies of these apps to give the developers a fair deal.

That probably looks like setting up a number of additional accounts and gifting ourselves additional copies of the apps. A lot of boring clicking around but we are trying to do the right thing where we possibly can. It's going to take some time.

In the meantime, I'd like to thank all my fellow developers who worked on these great apps for bearing with me while we figure all this out. It's all very new.
