Thankfully, however, there are many educators out there who are more than happy to make recommendations.   But where do you begin?  A recent quick Google search of “best educational iPad apps” produced a dizzying number of results – 11,000,000!!  

To help narrow your search, choose a statement from the list on the right to begin.

On the right, scroll through some of the FREE apps used in the Barrow County School System, with emphasis on MS/HS students.  The apps featured here focus on:

  • Organization of content
  • Note taking
  • Collaboration
  • Content Creation / Production
  • Classroom Tools
  • Basic Utility Apps

The PAID apps, listed below the first list, are those the school system recommends for purchase and are used for content creation. Although some apps may appear to be better suited for K – 5, they could be used in all K-12 classrooms.
