I'm amazed at the quality of the educational apps that are coming out, one after another! I've had an iPod Touch for a few years, and although our kids admittedly play a few games on it, I hav lots of education apps installed. Our elementary age children use it more than our teens, for math facts and geography.
Recently, I purchased an iPad 2, and if those things weren't so expensive, I'd justify buying one for our little students to share. Our 8yo has a few books installed on the iPad, our 11yo has used an anatomy app, and our teen son uses it for a great chemistry game app.
I hope companies keep developing apps for homeschool use and at home after school use! Lakeshore Learning is offering three educational apps right now, for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Here they are:
