  1. People here might be interested in a post I did of free iPad apps useful in education:
    Most apps have a very brief description and are linked to iTunes. The apps are grouped into the following categories: Note-taking, Utilities, Screencasting, Graphics/Photo/Video, Mindmapping/Brainstorming/Doodling, Communication tools, Feed Readers, News Sources, Reference/Content, and e-Readers.
