Apps in Education
Out of 125 responses from teachers indicating their top 3 apps, these are the apps that were listed most often. Over the last few weeks, we ran a survey asking teachers to tell us about two or three of their favorite iPad apps that they use in an education-related context. Today we share the apps that were listed most often, and include some feedback from teachers regarding why they like them so much. As it turns out, free apps really outweighed paid apps in our survey responses. Here I list eleven free apps that rose to the top of the list when ranked by numbers of votes, followed by four paid apps that performed as well as the lower ranking free apps. Evernote and Dropbox easily rose to the no. 1 & 2 spots in the ranked list, with about 1 out of 3 respondents recommending at least one of these two popular applications.

The Challenge Preparing and distributing lesson plans day after day, year after year, can become exhausting and costly. Your time is too precious to spend on bookmarking tons of sites, copying & pasting into Word docs, and xeroxing stacks of papers. Plus, how do you keep track of your students' input?
YouTube has earned a reputation for featuring brain cell-slaughtering fare such as the truly abysmal Fred and playing host to the some of the most depressingly stupid comments this side of Yahoo! News. But for every participant liberally dishing out misspelled racist, sexist and homophobic talking points, there is at least one whose channel genuinely offers something provocative and educational. For teachers hoping to infuse multimedia into their classrooms , YouTube makes for an excellent starting point.

Just before Xmas I reviewed a potential IWB killer app called Idea Flight . This was the first of a batch of iPad apps that I have found which attempt to replace the need for an IWB. Idea Flight attempted this by enabling the networking of groups of iPads and one of the primary criticisms that readers pointed out with this system is that it was limited to contexts in which students all had iPads. Doceri takes a very different approach though. Doceri requires that you have a data projector with either a laptop or desktop attached, but using a small app on the iPad and a small piece of software on the computer, it enables you to take control of the main computer with all it’s installed software, and Flash functionality, directly from your iPad.

Bellow, author of The Tech Commandments , and founder of eduTecher , spoke to a roomful of receptive teachers at the recent ISTE 2011 conference , and demonstrated some of the ironies and contradictions the education system is mired in. And he had some advice. 1) DON’T TRAP TECHNOLOGY IN A ROOM.
