    Educreation, if you are going to project iPad to projector.
    Pages, to replace Word.
    Numbers, to replace Excell.
    Keynote, to replace Poerpoint.
    Mathstudio, as graphing calculator...

    The best apps in schools are ones that enable a transformation in learning rather than just substituting one piece of technology for another (ie. pages for word)

    So in science for example, you might use the camera app to film an experiment and then you can use Numbers (spreadsheet app) to record the results, the method and a video of the experiment taking place (as, like most Apple Apps, all types of media is supported within the spreadsheet)

    I am putting a guide together for schools - still work in progress - but its at iPads in the Classroom - iPads in the Classroom

    It might help if you provided more specific information. Do you need apps for elementary schools, secondary schools, high schools, or colleges?

    I have an iPad 2 and have never tried a Mini. However, I have used all of the following extensively except the apps with an asterisk. I've tried out the ones with an asterisk but haven't gotten around to using them a lot.

    Blackboard Mobile
    Teach Aide (for its customizable attendance options)
    GradeBook Pro (Very good except the attendance option may be too simplistic for some educators)


    Keynote (Creating presentations)
    Pages (Creating documents)
    CloudOn (Good for opening documents in a variety of formats)
    Grafio–Diagrams and Ideas*
    Explain Everything/Doceri*/Educreations Interactive Whiteboard*

    Evernote/Notability/Meetings–Notebooks for Work*
    GoodReader/iAnnotate PDF
    Calculator for iPad/calculator by Rechner*

    1Password 4
    DropBox /or Box
    Splashtop/LogMeIn Ignition
    Jasmine/YouTube/McTube*

    Socrative is great for creating/taking quizzes. Educreations is good for creating lessons, especially in the event that you are absent. I use an ipad at my school, and I couldn't survive without iBooks. Gets free calculator, just search the App Store, there are tons. That's all I can think of. (Sorry, that's "get a free calculator," but my ipad froze and won't let me edit it.)
