    woo hoo!! Just heard from my program specialist that I MAY (cross your fingers) be getting enough iPads for my entire class because the high school in our district is using Chrome books and doesn't need them anymore. My class is Mild-moderate and a lot of my kids have trouble writing, speaking etc. so this would be a fabulous addition. I just want to make sure I am doing them justice with the iPads. Does anyone have any tips, programs, apps etc. that worked well when each student has an iPad? If there is anyone who has had a class set that could share their experience and what worked best, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    I signed up for the "smartsappsforkids.com" daily email. It's another email to sort through every day, but I usually find an app or two a week for free (that you'd usually have to pay for), and there have been a few real keepers. Some that address student IEP goals, some that enrich content area studies, and some that students really love during free time--there's a little bit of everything.
