iPad apps for education
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
Free download; license required for use
This app could be used in a photography or visual media class as a supplement to or replacement of a desktop computer; students could carry their iPads with them and edit from any part of the school, which would be handy when they are on shooting excursions outside of the classroom.
BEAKER by THIX
This would be a useful app for chemistry students who want to study an experiment or chemicals they will be working with in the lab before actually doing it; they will get to see how the chemicals react together and what they should expect from their experiment.
SkyView - Explore the Universe
Students studying the sky as part of a science class could use this to find certain objects in the sky, or to keep track of the rising and setting of the sun, moon, or any star or planet. It would help them make observations or see how the sky changes throughout the year.
Green Screen by Do Ink
It could be used as a homework supplement for students in French as a Second Language, or as a basis for the content covered in the course. It offers exercises for recall as well as simple lists of things students should know, and tracks progress for students.
