Here is a list of some good iPad apps I have compiled over the last weekend. This list is specifically curated to include apps that will enable students to exhibit their learning in multimodal ways. Students can use them to create tutorials, explanatory guides, record videos, or for digital storytelling purposes. Most of these apps have been featured in previous lists and in different contexts here in EdTech and Mlearning and the common thing among all of them is that they are student-friendly and are very simple to use.1- 30 Hands: Create and Show What You Know
30hands Mobile is a fun, innovative storytelling app that allows students, teachers and anyone with creativity to easily create narrated stories or presentations based on photos, images, drawings or video clips using an iPad, iPhone or iPod.
2- Puppet Pals HD
