— “Notability,” $4 for iPhone/iPad, lets you create notes, bring in pictures, music and video, and highlight your text.

“Nearpod” allows teachers to send surveys, ask questions and present slides. This has over 100,000 users.

—  “Schoology” allows teachers to share assignments, and lets students receive test scores. Already has 500,000 users. Are there that many digitally hip teachers? (iOS) (Android)
