Kids iPad Apps for Education

iPad Apps for Elementary School Education

This is a list of kids iPad apps for math, language arts, social studies, the arts, science, photo and video, and presentations / digital storytelling. There are FREE and paid apps. In the Apple / iPad ecosystem, "free" apps are generally limited versions of full apps. For example, in a Math app that promises to teach students addition, subraction, multiplication and division, the "free" version will typically be limited to addition operations only. Apps like this will often have the word "lite" in the name, like "Mad Math Lite."

 

 

iPad Apps - Educational Discounts Available

If you are an educational institution and you plan to purchase apps in volume, you may apply to Apple for their Volume Purchase Program. Some developers and publishers offer volume discounts that can reduce the price 50% for many apps.
