The iPad is the ultimate companion that facilitates all activities both personal and professional. It not only helps business and corporate personnel, it is equally useful for students and teachers, each having demanding work schedules and would benefit immensely from support and assistance, especially the kind provided by the numerous iPad apps available. The iPad is set to replace all laptops and desktop computers with its small form factor and portability and connectivity is its biggest asset.

iPad Apps For Teachers Five Best iPad Apps For Teachers

Teachers have their hands full with not just teaching and lectures, but also assignments, research and reading to stay abreast of all the latest developments and innovations in their field. Some of the iPad apps that can help them in multiple ways include:

  • Mobile Mouse- Teachers have access to the latest technology in the classroom. But juggling between devices and connecting them takes time and the students may feel precious time is lost. Not any more. Now with Mobile Mouse, the iPad gets converted into a wireless remote and can effectively handle all the devices. All that it entails is installing the server on the iPad and running the app. The mouse icon will now appear on the menu bar and is now ready for use for all media and web applications. It happens to be the only app with a full dock. For the price of only $2.99, it can enhance the efficiency of the teacher in the classroom.
  • Lessons- Lessons is a very useful iPad app for teachers since it helps them create practice tests, that can be shared with other users of the app or kept for private use. Lessons can be shared easily since the lessons written get published on the Apple servers and can be downloaded by others. It includes flash cards, quizzes, a built-in editor for creating new tests, and numerous other features. It can bought from the iTunes store for just $4.99.
  • TeacherPal- This is a simple and perceptive iPad app meant to help teachers as it becomes their personal organizer. The app offers an easy interface that helps them track attendance, grades and other details about students. An app like this, available free of cost from the iTunes store, is an asset to have.
  • OmniGraffle- This app proves so handy for teachers needing to create quick diagrams, graphic designs, process charts, website wireframes and so on. This app makes the iPad screen the page for creating any or a combination of these. The latest update of OmniGraffle adds image placement, newer drawing tools, and more text editing tools. This is an expensive app for $49.99 but offers a lot of facilities to teachers.
  • Bento- Bento is a perfect organizational iPad app for teachers that helps them keep track of all their activities, both personal and professional. It helps to keep track of lesson plans, schedules, appointments and notes of students. It comes in handy when ­teachers have their hands full with multiple activities going on. It is worth every bit of the $4.99 spent on buying the app.

These five apps will make teaching a whole new experience for all teachers.

I have been researching iPad apps for use as a lesson planner. When I read this post about Bento and it’s uses for teachers I thought I found what I was looking for! However, now that I have purchased the app I have realized that in order to create lesson plans I would have to create the template on Bento for Mac and then sync it. Well I don’t have a Mac computer just the iPad so I don’t see how I can do the above listed activities with the Bento app for iPad? It appears much more limited in its capabilities. Please tell me I’m wrong! If anyone has any suggestions on how to use the Bento app as a lesson planner I would LOVE to hear it. That way I don’t feel that I wasted $4.99. Thanks!
