  • Keynote

    Name: Keynote

    Developer: Apple

    Price: $9.99

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later.

    Keynote is an app you can use to create presentations and quizzes for class quickly and easily. It goes beyond the bounds of Powerpoint's chunky titles and text boxes, and instead offers users animated charts, 3D graphing and Retina Display support. 

    To save time when lesson planning, 12 Apple-designed themes are included as well as a variety of style and format options. You can also import old Powerpoint presentations for a revamp.

  • TED

    Developer: TED Conferences

    Price: Free

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. 

    If you need advice, tips, suggestions or inspiration as an education professional, the TED app is worth a download. Available for free, the TED app hosts thousands of talks, allowing you to download full videos on subjects including education, politics, business and music.

  • Kindle

    Name: Kindle

    Developer: Amazon

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

    We all need an app to access and read our e-books, and Amazon's Kindle is a decent choice. The free app can load, organize and store Kindle books, magazines, textbooks and .pdf files on your mobile device for the spare 5 minutes you might have on the commute to work.

    If you need extra reading material, you can buy additional books from Amazon's Kindle store.
