Managing a classroom is full of daily challenges. These apps can help some of your daily chores be less cumbersome and even fun. Let the iPad not only select the next student to call on but it can also decide what your next activity can be and if the class is being too noisy. You can also grade students using rubrics you create, keep track of attendance and send text/email messages to students and parents.
Decide Now! spinners help you decide when you have choices to make. Get the full version for $0.99, so you can create your own for center choices.
