I was just wandering the web when I ventured upon a few sites that provided sets of apps for teachers. These really opened my eyes so I thought I would share them with you as well.
Rasmussen Colleges’s 100 Apps for Teachers – This is a vast collection of apps that are divided into the following groups: Classroom Learning, Communication Tools, Personal Organization, Reference, and Teaching Tools. You are likely to find a jewel in this collection. I found iBrainstorm and it looks a great tool for collaborative creation.

50 Fab Apps for Teachers – This list by Scholastic is grouped by subject area. They include language arts, math, science, social studies, music & art, special needs, lesson planning, classroom management, and communication & organization. Some are free and some are a nominal fee.
84 iPad Apps to Share With K-12 Teachers and Students – This is a single page where Richard Byrne (of Free Tech 4 Teachers fame) has parked 4 slide decks of 21 best apps for PK-2nd grade, 3rd grade – 5th grade, Middle School and High School. As always, Richard has effectively searched the field and gleaned a useful collection of apps for us to use.
I hope that this collection of almost 250 app references is useful to you and your educator colleagues. Which ones did you discover and ultimately use? What would you suggest for others to use?
Share this posting with others so that they can add to their collections of App-ropriate Apps.
