I’ve been keeping a list of local schools that are using apps, and I’ve carved out some time this summer to do some personal development on creating apps. Conduit’s App Maker wouldn’t even require much time.
Have you created an app for your school or taken an online course to learn how? I’d like to know what you used, or if you took a class would your recommend it?
Today is World Autism Awareness Day.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now estimates that a staggering 1 in 88 children, including 1 in 54 boys, in the US has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
Edudemic shared 4 apps that can aid autistic students to better communicate with parents, teachers, and caregivers.
- AutisMate is an app for iOS and Android devices that focuses on improving both communication and behavioral skills in both verbal and non-verbal individuals.
- Proloquo2Go is a full-featured augmentative and alternative communication solution for anyone who has difficulty speaking.
- TouchChat is an augmentative and alternative communication app, quite similar to Proloquo2Go.
- Autism Tracker Pro offers useful tracking for families that have an individual with autism. It allows you to track important items like mood, behavior, food, health, and more so that you can look at patterns, progress, and just keep track.
You probably saw the title of this post and thought ‘okay there’s no friggin’ way anyone’s going to assemble a list of the best 50,000 education apps. But thanks to a partnership between Edudemic and FindTheBest, we’ve done just that. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a robust directory of, as of this writing, about 56,000 education apps. But it’s not just a list… it’s a finely tuned directory capable of sorting out all the apps in ways not even available in the iTunes or Mac App stores. For example, you can now find out the average price of all education apps to see where your app falls.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? BOOKMARK AND SHARE AND REBLOG AND USE this awesome resource! :)
I’m so impressionable, especially when it comes to news ways of organizing. I love this new app, Clear, because with one app I can quickly see all the things needin’ doin’. If only it integrated with Siri…
Thanks for the heads-up teachersintiaras:
Attention all iPhone users:
There are Apps for Teachers on the App Store! The apps include fun games, organizational tools, and even PowerSchool. I am so glad this was finally discovered (well, technically I have to give my boyfriend the credit for the discovery). Go check it out!
Oh, and have a splendid Monday.

For anyone that uses an iPad in class, what are your killer apps? I’m not talking about student apps, but teacher apps.
