iPads and the Primary Classroom

Apps, Projects, Management and Workflow

Learning and Creating with iPads in Kindergarten

What Apps Should We Use?

"It's not about finding education apps. It's about finding apps you can use for education."


Open ended apps allow children to explore and create. Look for apps that use drawing, painting and creating scenes. We want our youngest students to engage in open-ended play and exploration.


To think about....management and collaboration are key!
