App Suggestion #1
Since the students and teachers are just getting started with their iPads I thought that I would take this chance to make a suggestion for an app that I've heard both students and teachers are using on their own devices.
Duolingo is a great free app and service for learning a foreign language. You signup with their service, pick the language you'd like to learn and then start learning. The iPad app is great and uses a series of levels with audio and visual aids to help you learn the language. The audio is a very helpful feature, since pronunciation can be very important with certain words.
