Do you have other good education apps you recommend?
I'd like to recommend an app I wrote called Picturebook
Picturebook lets you create and share illustrated stories on the iPad. It's great as a creative writing tool as well as a custom bedtime story maker for little ones.
Thanks @maplekey! I'll definitely check out Picturebook.
Take a look at Oscar's Apps - we build educational apps specifically for 2-5 year olds (www.oscarsapps.com) and have had plenty of sales to education institutions as well as being positively reviewed by independent early childhood educators.
Thanks for letting us know about Oscar's Apps! Great to have you stop by Appolicious.
Great write up, Shara! What a great resources for educators and administrators!
Hopefully next time our app, Teacher Notes, will make the cut. The free app functions as an easy way to file written notes, photos, movies or audio notes on multiple children, domains and content areas all at one time. Then when it is time to write reports cards or evaluations, Teacher Notes has a quick way to sort notes by any combination of children, domains or content area. You can then e-mail your organized notes, or email just one note with its accompanying photo, movie or audio file. You’ll find that Teacher Notes functions much more rapidly than jotting down notes on a clipboard and you’ll be able to find your notes much faster than looking in a notebook.
1. Have a different notebook for each class, each with its own kids, domains and content areas
2. Jot down notes, but also take pictures, movies and audio clips
3. Effortlessly file notes on multiple children, domains and content areas
4. Quickly find any note you have taken
5. Rapid sorting engine lets you order your notes the way you like
6. Email all your notes organized as you wish
7. Email single notes and access its photos, movies and audio from anywhere
We are in the process of updating the app to have an export feature and eventually will incorporate integration with the iPhone!
More info can be found on www.facebook.com/teachernotes
Thanks Aaron! Teacher Notes looks great.
I also found some great educational apps for school kids above 10.

Hi There, great resources out there. Tried to leave a comment before but session died! Anyway, here goes again... would like to recommend the following APP - AMAZING LONDON, it is FREE via Appolicious - link is...
would be a great teachers resource for a class trip around the city of London..Enjoy.
Their website describes it as follows...
As you walk around historic London, you are traveling in the footsteps of amazing people including Charles Dickens, Florence Nightingale, Charlie Chaplin and Winston Churchill. In their different ways, they made major contributions to London, which in turn helped make the city what it is today.
A city tour unlike any other, Amazing People of London takes you on a fascinating journey through the history of one of the world's most celebrated cities. Through BioViews-, you can meet those who contributed to the music, the business, the politics and other vital and fascinating aspects of London. A BioView is a short biographical story, similar to an interview. These unique stories provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
Thanks for letting us know about Amazing London, it sounds like a great resource - who's going to be first to review?
I'd like to recommend the DoInk Animation & Drawing app http://www.bit.ly/qeYT9D for the iPad. It is great for visual learners, popular in schools and recently received great reviews in Teachers with Apps http://www.bit.ly/psjPhR & iApps for Teachers http://www.iappsforteachers.com/2011/09/doink-ipad-499.html DoInk is used in schools for creative learning, storytelling http://www.bit.ly/gzvwLR, showing complex processes in Math http://www.bit.ly/oTF7lJ and in Science http://www. bit.ly/i35J5R.

Hello readers and teachers,
This looks like a good resource list to be used in the classroom. But I wonder how does a school and use the app? Is each teacher buying an app and recomending it to the students? Or does a school buy liscences of a group use of an app?
Check out Alphabet Runner HD, for pre-school children:

How about iNotebook? Though I use it for writing essays at superiorpapers.com, it could be a great app also for kids or university students alike. I think it is very useful and easy to handle.
