Apps in Education: iPad Accessories for Learning

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

I was reading Tony Vincent’s great site Learning in Hand and was intrigued to read his suggestions for iPad accessories. I was aware of some of these but was either unaware of or had not considered many of them to actually be iPad accessories. So I thought I would do some research of my own to see exactly what Tony had been talking about.

Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:

A lot of great acceories for iPhones and iPads.  At first glance, they seem to be the best prices for these items as well.
