iCreate to Educate is a learning company dedicated to inspiring students' imaginations around the world through simple, hands-on technology. By engaging students in creation, kids express their ideas and increase their understandings across science, math, and language arts. iCreate's flagship product, SAM Animation, has been adopted by schools across the world, and its most recent product - the myCreate iPad app - is gaining international traction as well.

In this webinar @tjhouston and @llacrosse will overview 20 apps in 20 minutes. These are the apps that were used in the classroom and found to be effective supplements to the curriculum. They were used with 5th grade science students while working with ipads for an entire school year.
While there is no perfect list of apps that will be guaranteed to work with all students in all classrooms, this list may be a good starting point for seeing the variety of apps available for the classroom. The types of apps available to teachers and students range from basic consumption of information apps to creation apps that allow teachers to provide a platform for students to showcase growth and learning. Each teacher and group of students will benefit from working to individualize their class with app usage. The best apps are those that work for YOUR content, YOUR class structure, and YOUR needs.
What if every student had access to best teachers in the world, no matter where they lived or what school they went to?
