My 24 Most-Used Education Apps (What Are Yours?)

The Apple iPad is one of the biggest things we all talk about when it comes to education technology. It’s nothing new. But what is new is that amount of sharing teachers are doing around the world about what iPad apps work best for them. Some create lists of their favorite apps, others share screenshots using the old ‘home button + lock button’ feature on the iPad.

I see a few iPad screenshots here and there in my Twitter feed on a regular basis. But when I saw the most recent shot from Rob Brocklebank, I just had to add it to Edudemic. He shared the 24 (all the apps you can fit on one screen without using folders) most-used and favorite iPad apps for teachers.

Share Your Screenshot!

Want to get show off your favorite iPad apps? We’ll feature it on Edudemic so our million-plus readers can learn from your experience! Who knows, we might just give away a prize or two. Just email your screenshot to edudemic [at] to be considered. We’ll then compile them into something nice and easy-to-read. I’d recommend not having too busy a background so others can clearly see what apps are there.

    Evernote is a must! It replaces all todo lists, word processing software and file storage systems for me.

    I love the way you’re using screenshots to share what apps teachers are using visually. I compiled a similar list from asking current teachers what their favorite apps were to use, and from that research, I found 100 apps for teachers.
