  • iLEAP Pick A Student

    Name: iLEAP Pick A Student

    Developer: Epiphany Games

    Price: Free

    Compatibility: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later.

    Teaching is a juggling act, and sometimes it can be difficult to resist choosing the students you know have paid attention and will know the answers to your questions in order to make sure others participate in class. iLeap's Pick a Student is an interesting way to input your class lists and make picking students consistent. 

    You can choose turn-based or random selection.

    Via: Apple App Store

  • Book Creator for iPad

    Name: Book Creator for iPad

    Developer: Red Jumper Studio

    Price: $4.99

    Compatibility: iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later.

    Lessons in Western schools have expanded beyond projectors and photocopies, and as the next generation of teachers more readily accept technology as a way to make their lessons more interesting and interactive, a number of applications have been developed for this purpose.

    The creation of e-books -- when and if you have a time as a teacher, or if you want to make money as a publisher -- is made easier through apps including Book Creator. Available for the iPad, users can create their own books and manuals, choose portrait or landscape sizes, add images, edit text, and import video and music for use. 

    Over one million books have been created using the app so far.

  • Teacher’s Assistant Pro

    Name: Teacher's Assistant Pro 

    Developer: Lesson Portal

    Price: $7.99

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

    If you consistently drown in paperwork -- especially as report and parent conference season comes calling -- Teacher's Assistant Pro is a worthwhile investment to keep yourself organized. You can create student profiles to keep track of behaviour, achievements and infractions -- documenting incidents and reports, which can then be used for reference or emailed directly to parents and administrators via email.
