There’s an App… and an Accessory for That!

What happens when you combine an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with apps and accessories? You get APPcessories!

Everyday, it seems like more and more companies are coming up with innovative accessories to make iOS devices more fun and educational at the same time. With so many available, it is difficult to know what is good or not so good. Luckily, Jonathan Nalder has started to review some of these iOS apps and accessories from an educator’s standpoint. His website APPcessories.info is a fantastic resource for educators interested in learning more about APPcessories.

As a special educator, I am a big believer that play is a crucial part of the learning process, regardless of age or ability. And since I personally love to use iOS devices both inside and outside of my classroom walls (they are mobile learning devices after all!), I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the more interesting and innovative APPcessories I have discovered on the market. Here are a few of my favorites:
