As iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches become more integrated in classrooms, educators and students are looking for new ways to apply them for teaching and learning. There are many applications on all of these devices that can help automate current classroom processes or present new ways to learn that previously had been unexplored.

In this special feature, we’ve assembled a list of education “apps” for Apple devices that we think are noteworthy for higher education. The majority are free, while the others range in price from $0.99 to $9.99. What do you think of these apps? And, which education apps for Apple devices are you using now that aren’t on our list? Share your thoughts in the comments section of this story.
