  • Sand Timer

    Name: Sand Timer

    Developer: Smartphonewar

    Price: Free

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

    When you're maintaining a balance between teacher talking time and student activities, and have a number of tasks to plough through in an hour, sometimes lessons threaten to overrun or you may need to think on your feet to spend extra -- or less -- time explaining subjects. 

    Lessons are rarely completed to the exact times noted down in your plan, so why not use a free timer to try and keep things on track?

    Via: Apple App Store

  • Print Magic

    Name: Print Magic

    Developer: Wellala

    Price: $1.99

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.

    Lesson plans and print off exercise sheets are part-and-parcel of being a teacher -- but sometimes, there is a queue for the staff room's PC, or you run out of time.

    If you have an app like Print Magic, then you can connect to Wi-Fi and wired printers in order to wirelessly print off what you need. You can print text, images, .pdf files (with an in-app purchase) and emails. 

    Via: Apple App Store

  • Groovy Grader

    Name: Groovy Grader

    Developer: Dryrain Technologies

    Price: Free

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.

    Groovy Grader is an app designed to replace your "old school" paper grading calculator. Teachers can input student answers on up to 300 questions in order to quickly establish student grades in one sitting. 

    Via: Apple App Store
