The iPad Apps in Education blog is a great discovery. On the first page at the top is a band with app recommendation links — divided by subject and other categories. The lists are comprehensive. Blogger Greg Swanson includes all sorts of information including reviews of iPad accessories. He also has a post on video mirroring.
This is definitely a blog to watch as the school moves into a period of teaching and learning with iPads.
