When it comes to mobile learning there are loads of great iPad apps for administrators.
What are they? Well, our administrator friends in the Teacher Learning Community shared their favorites, and here are our Top 9 iPad Apps For Administrators
- Google Docs. Where would I be with out Google Docs? Lost, for sure. My life is spent editing and creating documents, presentations and spreadsheets. The ability to share those easily makes Google Docs my go-to app for editing, not only at the computer but on the go as well. I can edit, comment, and view all my documents from this app no matter where I am. This app can increase productivity for any administrator.
- Dropbox. If an item can’t be kept in Google Docs, I use Dropbox. The app gives you access to all your files stored in the cloud so you can retrieve or share them, no matter where you are.
- Adobe Ideas. You never know when a great idea is going to strike. Adobe Ideas is always at the ready to capture a drawing, sketch, list or what ever else you need.
- Pocket. I am a HUGE fan of this app. Whenever you’re reading a blog or come across a webpage that you just don’t have time to check out, you can save it to Pocket. Add items to your list with a check mark in the address bar, and the app gives you online and offline access to your entire list.
- Skype. Video calling is now available on the iPad. You can chat, make calls, and even do free video calling, no matter where you are. Participate in a faculty meeting when you aren’t at school or meet virtually with other administrators to build your network. All on your mobile device!
- Flipboard. This is a newsfeed that pulls the most relevant stories related to your favorite topics. Your personalized flipboard is then presented in an engaging visual format. With Flipboard, you can keep up with topics in education and share articles with your staff with ease.
- Google Translate. In many of our schools English may not be the main language spoken. The Google Translate app is great for helping to break the language barrier with students and staff. Enter text and get instant translations to use in emails and documents.
- TED. These are inspiring speeches given from some of the brightest minds on the planet. This app gives you access to the entire directory. Use TED talks to inspire and challenge the thinking of your staff.
- Dragon Dictation. Let’s face it, sometimes typing on a mobile device can be challenging. Dragon Dictation does it all for you. Using the built-in mic on your device you can dictate memos, documents, blog posts, and more.
