This is just a small taste of the apps we’ve found and incorporated into our eSpark curriculum. We find relevant apps for each student in your classroom—not just for each grade level and Common Core standards. Our goal is to take the burden of this app search off of administrators and teachers by curating a library of the best educational apps for the iPad. Along with this relevant, student centered curriculum, we also provide our district partners with understandable, actionable data, streamlined easy iPad setup, and expert teacher coaching and support.
