Apps For The Little Ones

The UCET Newsletter just came out,  {UCET: Utah Coalition for Educational Technology}, and as always it has lots of interesting resources. This time there was a section on iPod/iPad/iPhone  apps for Preschooler's. It made me think of a friend's exclamation upon getting an iPad for Christmas ~ "I knew I would have to share the iPad with the teenagers. I didn't expect to have to fight the babies for it".
It is amazing how intuitive our little ones are when it comes to technology. If you can't figure it out, give to a kid. For the teachers who are reading this ~ Yep... even in the classroom. If you can't get it to work, ask the kids for suggestions or even ask them to get out of their seat and come and help you. You will be AMAZED!
For those of you who teach our smallest (and their parents and grandparents), and have these hand-held wonders, try downloading a couple of these apps so the little ones are doing something productive when they fight you for it:
