I made the app choice cards with Publisher.
My student iPads are identical in organization, layout, and content (ex: the initial "page" on every iPad is the "math content" page- on the page are "folders" titled with a "concept" (ex: "place value") or "topic" (ex: "count and #'s") and are in the identical order in the page on each iPad- in the "folders" are corresponding apps (ex: in "count and #'s" some of the apps included are "Line 'Em Up", "Quick Images", "Count Sort"...) and are in the identical order within the folder on each iPad ...so the students can quickly and easily access apps.
I created a rectangular outline for each "app choice card" (3 per page in landscape view) and create the cards as apps are downloaded onto the iPads and organized. (I created a spreadsheet that correlates to the organization and content of the student iPads and add newly downloaded apps for a reference of the apps on the student iPads and the location of the apps- noting the "page", "folder", and app name.)
Each app choice card has 1. a color-filled "box" titled with the correlating "folder" 2. the name of the "app" within the folder 3. the app icon (that I located through searching in Google images).
