Received this post from @bhsprincipal and found many of the apps included interesting / innovative (and most of them I’d not heard of): http://www.the-teachers-lounge.com/blog/2012/03/technology-timesavers-for-teacher/.

Not all of the apps are free, but all are under $7. I downloaded the two free ones (Common Core and Teacher Asst., the Lite version), and passed on the pay ones (for now; and I had known about Dropbox & Dictionary.com).

Teacher Asst. seems interesting; I’m daunted by the set up, especially this late in the year, which might prove a stumbling block, but it also seems similar to a website to which I was recently introduced: http://www.classdojo.com. These sites aren’t terribly useful to me, teaching mostly juniors and seniors, but they seem an interesting approach to classroom management and assessment.
