I located an interesting blog post about technology integration.  It is titled

K-5 iPad Apps for Understanding: Part Two of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.  I especially enjoyed the Motion Math HD app, it meets the needs of the kinesthetic and visual learner.  The apps should maintain the students' motivation by making learning fun.
