I also figure this will be a place where I will post education applications for the iPad that I find or other technology ideas. Primarily this will be more geared to what is even possible in CCSD and more specifically, what is viable in a typical high school.
To start things off, I came across Essay Grader today and downloaded the free lite version. I will give it a trial run but for a basic app, it seems to have some very useful and detailed options that will work for both History and English classes. The application can be found in the iTunes App Store or by clicking here http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/essay-grader/id376946246?mt=8.
