Apps in the primary classroom
Tal Slome
Just so everyone knows my intentions with my presentation...I am in no way an expert on apps!

These are things that have been shared with me or things that I have found on the internet where anyone else could find them as well. If I have not given someone credit, I am sorry!! It is not my intention trying to steal anyone's ideas - I am just a teacher with her IPad!

I am only responsible for what I say,
NOT for what you understand!!
