This month I would like to give you an insight into the new Education Category within the Apple App Store.
Since the introduction of the iPhone, and more recently the iPad 3, classroom technology has seen a massive trend towards these devices. Apple have not only provided a fantastic tablet solution for personal and business use, but also within the Education field.
With an interface that is so easy to use, and one that is now the most familiar in the world, it is no wonder that the new Education Category within the App Store is sure to be another Apple success.
Browsing through the categories, there are many Apps (some even free or provided at a very low cost) for not only students of all ages, but also for Teachers. Some of these categories include Classroom Management, Curricula Support, Instructional Tools, Personal Organisation and Reference.
There are also hundreds of Reading Apps for students of all ages (there are some very cool interactive books in here), Music, Math and Life Science Apps to keep learning minds engaged and focused.
To browse these Apps, simply go to the App Store on your Apple device and type ‘education’ into the search field in the top right hand corner. You can then sort by category by tapping the field under the ‘category’ listing in the top left hand corner. Then simply choose your category and browse away.
You can find additional information on any App simply by touching the icon of any given listing. Then once inside, you will be given a brief run down, however more information can be found by touching the ‘more’ button.
To purchase the App, click on the price (Don’t worry, you will be asked if you really want to purchase if you accidently touch this), then click ‘Buy App’ and run through the iTunes process.
To return to the search listing, simply click on the ‘search’ button in the top left hand corner.
If you would like to share any of these learning tools with your class, Videopro can offer a range of solutions for connection of your Apple tablet to your existing (or new) display and sound devices, such as a data projector and speaker system, or LCD screen. This can be done wirelessly or via a cable connection, and the best part of all, is that Videopro are an authorised Apple reseller meaning that we can provide a turn-key solution for any of your Apple requirements.
