The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

We now have a few new "iPad Teachers" at our school. Since they were so excited and ready to get busy with their new teaching/productivity tool, I quickly typed up a list of my most used apps for daily productivity to share with each of them. Last June when I purchased my first iPad I slowly discovered all the ways it could help me be more organized, have information at any time and place I needed, and be an excellent teaching tool for planning, assessment, and student interactions. After reviewing my list, if any of you have a favorite I have not discovered, please share. I have put many, many, many apps to the test and there are thousands I have not tested.

Great list of apps - I will certainly add to my school division lists found at http://psdtechpd.wikispaces.com. I have app lists for early years, middle years, high school students and admin for iDevices. I also have started a Blackberry App list recently.

eclicker is a great data tracking app!  I am assuming you are looking for upper grades?  I have an app out MyIphonicsCVC that teaches students to read using a phonetic based approach.  But for upper grades I REALLY recommend eclicker!! Also.. are you using evernote?  I'll keep thinking of some more.

I teach 4th grade math...the best grade and subject! Most of my students are 9 or 10 years old, but I also have a couple 11 years olds.
