Equipment: Apps List

Maybe this book will help? Get Book

Creating List of Apps For Purchase ($250 limit - consider VPP)I believe this app list will be changing until the absolute last day before needing them deployed on the machines for the start of the school year. In my estimation about eight paid apps averaging $0.99 per app for 30 machines will take the entire $250 budget. Of course, if an app is more than
$0.99 than a smaller amount of apps will be able to be purchased. $250 really doesn't go that far
when the VPP takes affect. I do understand the reason for the VPP as apps are not created for
free. Managing the $250 for paid apps I believe will be the most challenging part of the 1:1 year.

BY NO MEANS is this a FINALIZED list, but I will be adding to it as I find apps that may be of use in my classroom. It is really going to be difficult to pair this down. I do believe that I will develop a rubric to determine the overall ranking of the apps before purchase.
