NOTE: This resource is from a worthwhile blog for teachers and other educational professionals. It can be downloaded and saved or printed by clicking on the link just above the title page.

"Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has had a particular focus on the use of the iPad in education, more so than on other than any other tablet on the market.We do, in fact, love other tablets especially the Motorola Xoom, Samsung GalaxyTab 10.1 and LG Optimus.

We do believe these have promising potential in education as well, but for now it seems that the iPad is leading the mobile learning revolution. This is probably due to the kind of investment Apple is making in education.


The folks at Apple have taken the issue seriously, and they are intent on monopolizing the educational market. From iBook Author to iPad Mini, their success has been just unbelievable, to the point that some school boards in the United States and Canada have already started adopting iPads as learning tools in the classrooms, and some in the form of 1:1 environments.

That being said, practitioners and teachers who are trying to implement iPad use in their instruction find it hard to sift through the clogged-up apps market. Educational apps are everywhere, yet it is hard to find the appropriate ones for classroom inclusion.

This exactly why we have created the  iPad Resources section in this blog, just to help you find your way through the cloud. We are also adding the booklet below to that section. Check it out! This is basically a collection of some of the best iPad apps for special education.

These apps are organized into different categories from Math to Sign Language.
