What are the best apps for your classroom? The best little bits of software to use tomorrow, in your school, to make your classroom go?

This is, strangely, not a frequent topic for us. We are more interested in helping you push your classroom towards something unrecognizable–something that reflects the extraordinary change the world has seen but many public schools have somehow resisted. Something that centers students, helps them learn what’s worth understanding, and then equips them–and you–to make that learning happen.

But what if that’s not your bag? What if you have a classroom and standards and tests and pressure and walkthroughs and parents and IEPs and 504s and classroom management issues and bandwidth problems and Draconian district filtering and that’s just the way it is? What then?

This is the reality that, if statistics don’t mislead, most of you face on a daily basis. The good news is, there is a lot you can do in a traditional, top-down, “high-pressure” school or classroom. The apps below represent 52 (which conveniently works out to about one per week if you want to try them that way) of the best apps for your classroom. There are apps that help teachers gather data, scan exams, contact parents, promote research, keep notes, share documents, or even flip your classroom in 2015.

Let us know in the comments any that were what-were-they-thinking-missing-that-one? examples.
