During eSN’s Administrator and Policy Week, we’re compiling resources that can help you manage your responsibilities
Leading a school or a school district is, understandably, an important and critical job. Today’s school administrators must keep up to date with learning trends, instructional strategies, technology initiatives, and everything in between.
The following five apps–all free–might help busy administrators manage their workload, identify and organize priorities, and make their days a little less hectic.

This app helps school or district Facebook page administrators keep up with their audience and stay active on multiple pages at one time. Users can post updates and photos and respond to comments, view and reply to private messages, and can receive push notifications for new activities, tips, and reminders.
Using this app, administrators can sign documents and get signatures quickly from their mobile devices. Downloading, using, and signing a document are always free. The app offers upgrades if desired. It supports multiple formats, such as PDF and Microsoft documents, and stores documents instantly and securely.
Dropbox lets administrators bring all photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Access any file saved to Dropbox from all computers, iPhone, iPad, and the web.
Administrators can use PocketCloud to connect to their Mac or Windows desktop from the iPad or iPhone.
Administrators can record and sync notes and audio using this app, which automatically indexes meetings, lectures, interviews, or other important events. Audio recording is limited in the free version, but an upgrade is available.
