apps teachers

15 tools and apps today’s teachers actually use

eSchool News takes teachers' favorite apps and tools and compiles them into one list.

Some of the best things about an ed-tech conference are the sessions, where attendees learn about new tools and resources, trends, and teaching strategies. But you can’t make it to every session, and sometimes it’s hard to choose when each session is compelling and relevant to your educational needs.

That’s where eSchool News can help. During the many conference we attend, our editorial team heard from real educators who shared real experiences in their classrooms and with students.

We’ve put together a list of apps, tools and resources from these educators:

1. Numbers for iPad lets users create spreadsheets that include charts, text, images, and tables. The iPad app is collaborative and lets a group of users work together in real time.

2. Nepris connects educators and students to industry experts through web-based chat sessions about careers, topics and concepts students wish to learn more about.

3. Nearpod is an interactive classroom tool to help teachers engage and assess students. Teachers can create and customize the interactive lessons or can download other resources.
