10 apps that can make life easier for teachers

​Apps For Common Core

Technology is transforming education just like it's changing the rest of the world. Mobile devices and laptops are common sights in the modern classroom, and as every teacher knows they can be a bane just as much as a boon.

The simple fact is that they aren't going away, so you may as well start using them to your advantage. Here are 10 apps that are designed for teachers and students that can help you make use of the tech that's all around you.

First up is Apps For Common Core. It's a repository of all those Common Core standards you might still be trying to adapt to, and it's also a collaborative space for teachers to share success stories. You can post tips and lesson ideas for your fellow educators, which can be a great help when a standard is tripping you up.

Apps For Common Core is available on iOS devices.
