I posted 2 videos to help beginners get started.  Video 1 shows how to save items in online cloud storage to go from PC to iPad and back, and how to teach with an iPad through your desktop PC.  Video 2 features how to teach with the iPad, how to pull items from cloud storage, and some apps that I like to use when teaching math.  A full tutorial can be found at http://beckypiscitellapcipad.wikispaces.com/

I used the SloPro app in fourth grade recently for a writing lesson. My goal was to have students expand their writing from one short sentence to two or three more descriptive sentences. Here is a write up of the idea and the app on my blog http://www.ideasforeducators.com/1/post/2013/02/slow-motion-writing...

Dozier Elementary's "Sea of iPad Resources" for the classroom. Listed are educational apps that could be used with iPads in the classroom.  The site has "500+  free apps" and "paying apps."  The apps are divided by subject areas such as Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Social Studies, Music.

There are two additional categories including "book apps" and creative apps, which will allow student projects to be created. Also listed are many articles, links and blogs that might be helpful for each classroom teacher.

Hi Everyone. 15 iPads have been bought at my school. Looking for suggestions on how to organise them efficiently - all charging, all portable aroung the school, get all apps onto them all at the same time without treating each one individually. I recall reading some time ago about other people having carts for charging then all and downloading apps to the all at the same time. How do you all oragnise them at your school?

I have also been very pleased with splashtop whiteboard. I would say it is a standard for the iPad using teacher.
Comment by Justin Moore on January 12, 2012 at 11:39pm
I have not yet tried socrative yet but it is on my to try list. Other teachers in the district have used it and are very pleased. Eclicker has been too glitchy lately and tends to kick users out of the session repeatedly. Not so with socrative apparently. I am really interested in the race option it gives, sounds like fun.

I like Splashtop Whiteboard for controlling my computer from an ipad. It is easy to use and kid friendly too, to pass the ipad around. Need an app on ipad and one on your computer to have it work. Computer one is free. $9.99 for ipad
