About

iPad Apps for School is written by me, Richard Byrne. I am best known in the educational technology community for my award-winning blog Free Technology for Teachers. I taught high school social studies and language arts for eight years before becoming a full-time writer, researcher, and speaker. Prior to that I was an operations manager for FedEx Ground.

I believe that good teaching is good teaching regardless of the technology that is used in a classroom. That said, technology does offer us the opportunity to enhance our students’ learning experiences like never before. A simple example of this can be found in video editing. When most of us went through school the opportunities to create and express ourselves through video were limited at best and nonexistent at worst. Today, any student that has access to the web can create a video in well under an hour.
