It has been obvious to me for some time now that any learning that is based around use of an iPad should really not be hung on one particular app.
That it is about a flow of work, be it individual, or collaborative. Yes, there are some powerful productivity apps that will assist with note taking and organising oneself. There are also amazing apps with content, but actually – in an environment where students have access to iPads – we want them to be able to demonstrate their understanding and learning through the generation of their own content.
With that in mind, I’ve been thinking that there are two main tiers of creation based apps for the iPad. There are those that are compilers and those that are the creation tools, i.e. those tools that take all of the various elements that you have created and those that put all of those things in to a combined format.
