Apps teachers use to tame the classroom and teach their students It's the start of a new school year, which means you've probably got a stack of new books on your desk, a drawer full of new pencils and an iPad that desperately needs some new apps. TUAW is here to help you build a new app list, and we did so with the help of some friends.

60 Educational iPad Apps for Teachers First let me just thank all of you who have taken the time to confirm their email subscriptions after the obligatory migration I did to aWeber. As I said in yesterday's post, I am no longer using Feedburner as the email delivery for this blog, I migrated to aWeber for fear of any sudden shut down of Feedburner particularly after the news of Google Reader's closure. So please if you have not yet confirmed your email subscription or if you want to subscribe anew use the widget "subscribe for updates " on the right hand sidebar to do so. I also appreciate all the emails and feedback I got from you and some of these emails have really made my day.

Teaching Appz is a great new website to help teachers to find apps for iPads, iPods and other mobile devices (including Android, Playbook and web) that can be used in the classroom.

The site is the brainchild of Mark Warner, creator of other great sites such as Teaching Videos, Teaching Ideas and many more.
While each of us has our own particular needs, I’m sure one or more of these apps will serve your needs.
