64 Varied And Essential iPad Apps For Teachers

by TeachThought Staff

What exactly makes an app “essential” is open to interpretation. For pure productivity, you could consider the direction of Google Drive, Skype, Zoom Notes, iAnnotate–maybe a gradebook app, Class Dojo, etc.

But what if your classroom if is full of open-ended projects and you need to constantly communicate with students, parents, and the community? Google+, Google Hangouts, Remind, DIY, and maybe Trello?

College-prepping seniors in high school? Need apps for struggling readers in elementary? It just depends.

Which is what made the list below by Craig Nansen so interesting–its diversity. Garage Band, notability, Wolfram Alpha, VoiceThread, Explain Everything–a variety of apps for a variety of needs for a variety of classrooms. There’s not much here for game-based learning or learning simulations, but the universal application for so many of the apps gives the list impressive utility for a lot of you out there–which is why we shared it here.
