Cloud Storage

 Use an app like Skitch and create an annotated screenshot of your favorite app collection on your iPad. 

Google Drive, with unlimited storage within Google Apps for Education (GAfE) is the perfect solution for schools using iPads. Since many iPads are limited on storage, Google Drive is a great compliment for storing files for easy retrieval. 

Dropbox is another great app (although it's kinda like Amway) to store and share large files with coworkers... we might address this, but there's so much good stuff with the Google, this is another option for those that don't have Google Apps for Education. 

Video Collaboration

Facetime is a great app for 1:1 communication with teachers, parents, family and others that need to see you when they are talking with you. 

Google Hangouts, a video collaboration tool, is a very powerful application that holds many beneficial features for education. If you're looking to connecting with multiple educators from around the globe, this the app for you. With upwards of a 15:1 connection ratio, Hangouts is a sure fire application for some powerful video learning for all grade levels. 

iBooks and iTunes U

iBooks allows learners to read a variety of content. It's preferred to use content that is already in the form of ePub, but a great way to get started and collecting is to focus on used it to aggregate PDF documents as well. 

Resources for iBooks and ePub:

iTunes U - iTunes U is the best way to create and experience courses on iPad.  The iTunes U app gives you access to complete courses from leading universities and other schools — plus the world’s largest digital catalog of free education content — right on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Let's us an app like Book Creator and create a one page biography about your teaching career thus far. Successes? Accomplishments? Aspirations?
