Apps Recommended by the Learning Supports Branch

Apps on this list are often recommended by staff from Learning Supports. In general, they do not share student information, or require logins, and therefore do not require formal approval for use. In general, if the app is recommended by staff from Learning Support, the app is approved for use with the individual student in question.

Some of these apps are expensive. If the cost is less than $1,000 for any equipment, the school is expected to pay for the equipment using IES funds. If the cost is more than $1,000, the school and Learning Supports can cost share.

Learning Supports often purchases these apps in large volumes, and so is sometimes able to get them for a reduced price. We are able to purchase apps and then assign them to specific ipads remotely, and are happy to do that for schools. We will then charge the cost to a budget code provided by the school.
