Top Education iPad Apps
An interactive guide to the cosmos, Star Walk uses augmented reality to help you discover more than 9,000 stars, planets, and constellations. The Star Spotter feature paints a live picture of what’s above, and a built-in digital compass follows your iPad’s movements in every direction. You can also see what the sky will look like weeks or months from now using the integrated Time Machine. Links to Wikipedia articles from within the app prove Star Walk is more than just iCandy.
The Elements: A Visual Exploration
It kind of feels like the future of education in your hands. Or at the very least a very important step in that direction. This draw-dropping app includes rotating samples of the 118 elements that you can flick around, paired with entertaining back stories that actually make learning fun. When you want to dig deeper, the app features a live connection to the Wolfram Alpha search engine that delivers real-time data. Armchair scientists will also appreciate the bundled experiment videos that show off compelling properties of the elements.
