1,000 Education Apps Organized By Subject & Price

Sure, there are plenty of apps you can use in education. There are even apps created specifically for use in education. Apple has a whole category dedicated to education in the App store. But how do you really know which ones are worth downloading, or possibly even paying for?

TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) to the rescue! TCEA regularly tests available apps and recommends apps that teachers should be using.

TCEA maintains a list of recommended apps in a shared document via Google Docs. The list is organized by subject area and free apps are color coded in white.

Interactive Books

To give you an idea of the sheer magnitude of this list, I’ve added the list for just interactive books. There are dozens of other categories with even more great apps to check out. While the titles of the apps are not linked to the App Store, a quick search for an interesting-sounding title is easy enough.
