One iPad Classroom

Show of Hands -- shows a survey type question and then the results according to a number of different demographic breakdowns.

Sphere -- formerly TourWrist -- for my World Cultures kids to show them in 360 degrees what certain sites look like (I use it as a sort of quick virtual field trip) and I love that as they hold the iPad and turn around and move the device the view changes. Just take any fold over cover off of the iPad as they can come off when the iPad is being passed from one to another and the iPad gets dropped as a result.


  1. Research apps that take advantage of the accelerometer and gyroscope on the iPad.

  2. What other apps work well in a one iPad classroom?
