Often these resources are learner-centered– math apps , struggling reader apps and apps to improve writing , etc. The following list, though, are as much for teachers as students, and make an excellent foundation of apps for any teacher interested in mobile learning,m project-based learning, or other student-centered approaches to technology in the classroom. Sam Glikman, author of iPad in Education for Dummies (an excellent resource for any educator who actually intends on learning to happen when students are given iPads), put together this excellent list, from Wolfram Alpha and Slide Shark to Eye to Diigo and GoodReader. 29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator’s Essential iPad Toolkit

100 Mobile Tools for Teachers
By Cherrye Moore It is a common-known fact that teaching is a labor of love for most educators. They are overworked and under-appreciated and many of them spend their own money, time and energy to improve their studentsâ€™ education. With all of the new mobile tools on the market today, teachers can more easily work from satellite locations, share educational resources and access school-related data directly from their cell phones.
Readability | Apptastic
Overview PDFs have become the default format for sharing formatted documents across platforms. If you only want to read PDFs, iBooks will likely meet your needs. But, if you want to modify or annotate your PDFs, you’ll need a different app with a larger toolkit.

Apps, smartphones, and tablets are storming into classrooms around the world. But how do you figure out which apps are being used by teachers, admins, students, and parents ? It’s not an easy task, to be sure. But you can rest assured there are definitely some apps that are being used a bit more than others. For example, we’ve seen Dropbox and Edmodo used by just about every school district around Cambridge.
The 25 Most Used Mobile Apps In Education
No doubt all our readers in the education field are well aware of the explosion of iPads and tablets in the classroom and their ability to make learning easier and more interactive. But we suspect at least some of you are still reluctant to turn the new tech loose on grading, an area where you could be needlessly wasting hours assessing students with an antiquated system. We know change can be daunting, but we promise that within this list of apps teachers love, you’ll find something you love, too. GradeBook Pro : If you’re a teacher who’s been hanging on to a hard-copy gradebook, this app is your invitation to see what all the fuss over grading apps is about. For $10 the app comes packed with features like automatic grade calculation, status report notification emails for students or parents, attendance reports on PDF, and more.
20 Time-Saving Grading Apps That Teachers Love
Everyone seems to talk endlessly about the role smartphones and other mobile technologies play in today’s classroom, especially when it comes to the best apps to get teachers organized and keep students learning. Higher ed has not inoculated itself against the spread, and ranks from the university president down to the lowliest of fresh meat tote around a smartphone or a tablet these days. Some, of course, benefit the faculty more than others, and the following prove pretty popular among professors these days. Dropbox : Thanks to the magic and wonder of cloud computing, professors on the go can access their files from other devices they’ve connected to their personal networks, meaning they never leave an important digital document at home! Documents To Go : Available for nearly all smartphone and PDA platforms, Documents To Go offers up the full suite of Microsoft Office programs, and saving a file on one device makes changes to all connected ones as well!

What amazing things technology is bringing into our life. What is even more amazing in technology is its unpredictability. We never know what will come next and in the same time we are alwasy looking for innovations. At first we started with technology, then things advanced to give birth to mobile technology and now we are living in an age of nanotechnology. Isn't it amazing how human life is developing into the unknown ?
If you just dropped a few hundred dollars on an iPad, you might not have much left in your budget to fill it up with apps. Fortunately, app developers have already stepped up and created a huge collection of completely free iPad apps.
Added by Jeff Dunn on 2012-08-13 Long after degrees have been conferred and careers have been launched, many folks just can’t seem to quit school. For them, life provides an overstuffed cornucopia of educational opportunities that don’t necessarily require hefty loans and navigating different professorial strategies. Those with a lust for learning who happen to also enjoy testing the limits of what the iPad offers definitely don’t have to worry about finding resources to pique their fancy. Hundreds, if not thousands, of apps are out there just twitching for users to fire them up and absorb a mental nugget or two.

7 Mobile Apps Students Can Use to Never Lose Handwritten Notes Again
A couple of weeks ago on my Android blog I wrote about using the Google Drive app to create digital archives of handwritten notes. That post was prompted by a conversation that I had with a young lady entering her senior year at a high school in Rockingham County, North Carolina. That young lady explained to me that she preferred the act of handwriting her notes and outlines to typing them out on a keyboard. In a lot of ways I agreed with her because when I plan my keynote talks I always use pencil and scratch paper before creating and arranging slides. Try one or all of these seven apps ff you have students that prefer to handwrite their notes or if you prefer to handwrite your notes, but you're worried about those notes getting lost. InClass is a free iPhone and iPad app that could be a very useful tool for students carrying those devices.
