Mobile Apps in Schools

helpful apps for K-12 teaching


Open source lectures and resources. Using this as a helpful tool or even a lecture replacement will keep kids informed and up to date. I personally would use this in a social studies class. Each student picks a TED talk that interests them and/or relates to the current unit and writes about it.


This app is useful for both teachers and students. It's a PLN option for teacher as well as a mobile LMS option. You can grade, submit, discuss etc. all on one mobile app.


This tools allows you to easily highlight, and make notes on PDF files. This way students can add their personal notes to a PDF of the class notes. Great for secondary classrooms that involve huge influxes of information.


This app allows you to easily screenshot and export files. This makes handing in BYOD activities very easy.
