    I just got an iPod Touch yesterday and I'm discovering all the apps out there. I was just wondering if there are any particularly good (and free) apps that are beneficial for teachers.

    I found a grade book app (I don't use it because my school has a different grading system). There is also a cool one where you can enter your students' names and it will randomly select someone for you to call on. I use the timer frequently. I put it under my projector so the students can see how much time they have left to complete an assignment.

    not necessarily educator specific, but definitely need "To Do" list from Yadahome- rank to do's low, medium, high priority; has a grocery list and calendar

    "Box.net" ap is cool, lets you keep Word, Excel, and Acrobat documents on your iPod; not the easiest to use but sometimes needed.

    "Cool Facts" is funny, thousands of trivia facts that pop up, shake iPod to get a new fact. Put them on the board each morning for a quirky interest item.

    "GFlash" makes testing flashcards, though I personally wouldn't ever give my iPod to a student, but if the kids have their own...

    And just personally, I like the NYTimes ap, WootWatch sales items, White House ap, and as a science nerd- NASA ap and Planets by Q continuum

    Enjoy your iPod, buy a nice cover to keep it from being scratched and back it up frequently!!
