Five Reasons why we choose to purchase these 5 Apps for our iPads

The Apps we decided on and why?
Pages                  Numbers                  Keynote                    Comiclife                     iMovie

  1. Giving these apps to teachers will hopefully,eventually allow us to remove the desktop computers from their classrooms.
  2.   These apps will be required for students, so we should be able to teach them how to use this apps.
  3. Giving alternatives to web-based apps will help if the internet is down.
  4. Many teachers have not had access to these tools and are use to Word, Excel, and Powerpoint providing tools that function similarly and allow these files to be opened is important to generating teacher support and to facilitating use of previously created materials through the iPad interface.
  5.  Someday our teachers may have Macbooks, while students keep the iPads…… maybe….

This keeps the total cost of apps under 45USD per iPad.
