10 IPad Apps That Are Perfect For Teachers10 IPad Apps That Are Perfect For Teachers

Who says iPad is only for hippie teenagers? Who says it works best only for the corporate people? Who says it is only for fun and entertainment? Whoever said that has belittled Apple's recent gadget because iPad has now become very relevant for people of different ages and backgrounds--and teachers are no exception. There are many iPad applications available to educators now, but the topmost are as follows:

1. QuickVoice Recorder

With QuickVoice Recorder, you can record your classes and afterwards, gather feedback about your performance. This app will help you see what you're doing right and wrong in class and so, you will learn how to improve your lectures.

2. KeyNote

Ever thought of how you can do away with boring lectures? This application is the answer to your problem. With KeyNote, you can now jazz up your class by adding animations, pictures, videos, and other multimedia tools to your lectures. This app has 12 themes that you can choose from, and with just a few taps and swipes, you're now ready to give your students an entertaining lecture.

3. Evernote

With Evernote, you don't have to carry separate notebooks for your lesson plans or activities. You can simply use this app to enter your notes in either text or voice formats, wherever you are and whenever you want to.

4. Numbers for iPad

With Numbers, you don't anymore have to depend on your PCs for your daily spreadsheet needs. This app is user-friendly and with just a press or tap, you can import all information from your Excel worksheets. Another winning feature of this app is its attendance-taking template, which allows you to take attendance quickly using its tabbed forms.

5. GoodReader for iPad

Nowadays, it is common for teachers to maintain a number of separate files and documents, and to access all of these in one location is the best thing that iPad has to offer. With GoodReader, you can access all of your documents, video and audio files, spreadsheets and other important files over a wireless network or via a USB cable. The most recent feature of this app is the VGA output support, which allows you to project PDF handouts, Microsoft Office documents and iWork documents altogether.

6. Mobile Air Mouse

Who would have thought that you can turn your iPad into a powerful remote control now? While holding presentations or lectures with an interactive whiteboard, this app will let you convert your iPad into an all-in-one remote control, allowing you to manipulate the whiteboard without necessitating the use of a wireless keyboard and mouse.

7. WritePad
This app is one of the winning features of the iPad. If you're tired of typing, you need not worry anymore because with WritePad, you can now write using your finger or a stylus and like magic, your handwriting will be converted into a readable text.

8. EssayGrader

If you teach a course with serious writing assignments, EssayGrader can help save you time in providing meaningful feedback to your students. This app provides you criteria checkboxes to quickly evaluate essays and other writing assignments. Afterwards, this app will generate a graded evaluation form which you can email to your students. Each step you follow in evaluating should be personalized, however, adding more specific comments to your students.

9. Free Books

As a teacher, you will always need a book to use as a reference to your lectures. With Free Books, you can now get hold to a thousand books from the comforts of your assigned classroom. This app helps you gain access to classic novels, autobiographies, speeches and other writings by notable figures. This app is very relevant not only to teachers but also to all booklovers out there.

10. Pages

Pages is a word processing application owned by Apple which helps you create striking handouts, exams, notes and presentations. This has 16 available templates to choose from, depending on your style and need. Pages also allows you to save files in the usual MS Word and PDF formats.

As a teacher, you have different teaching needs depending on the subject you hold. With more iPad applications available in the market, you should carefully choose those apps which would best address the needs of your students and make their learning, and also yours, a productive one.
