    Here's what I primarily use as an elementary school teacher.

    Pages
    Keynote (for presentations to staff/students)
    Numbers (tracking forms/assignments/misc admin stuff)
    Educreations (a whiteboard app which I use to record screencasts and write on; mirrored to smartboard via airserver app on macbook) I have a few other education apps but they don't get used as often.
    Default mail app
    Skitch (annotating on photos)
    Evernote (currently using it as a to-do list and notes-replacement to capture all my thoughts and workplans)
    Dropbox (stores all my digitised teaching materials and doubles as a file manager)
    Goodreader / Notability (Goodreader is better at sorting out pdfs, but notability is better for annotating hand-written notes)
    Google Drive - for viewing and editing shared google docs
    Jasmine (for showing youtube videos; Youtube for ipad is just too slow and laggy, and doesn't support background airplay).
    Socrative (easily create and administer quizzes and polls)

    A splattering of other apps, which don't get used that often. :)

    Wow, didn't realise I relied on so many apps for my teaching! :eek:

    We use Polaris Office instead of iWorks at work. Still waiting for MS to deliver something for iPad (will never happen it seems).
    GoodReader,
    Adobe PDF,
    WebEX,
    In house development
    Safari based apps
    IThoughtHD for mind mapping (love that one)


    Our security guidelines render the iPad into a boaring tool. Nothing like Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud etc.
