iPads in the Classroom

On Monday, January 9, LCS is having a professional development day under the motto "Teachers Teaching Teachers". With my colleague Rhona, I will be hosting a one-hour session on iPads in the classroom. The main idea is to get teachers excited about exploring the use of our school iPads in their classroom, by giving a few examples of what you can do with an iPad. Below is the list of apps we will introduce before teachers will get an opportunity to explore some of them independently. Which apps would you have added to this list?
