The flashcard apps are very helpful for all students, but especially students with learning disabilities. Smudge and Sketchbook Pro are very effective apps for differentiated assessments and supplemental learning. The language arts apps provide great resources for texts when students do not have their book or need additional information.
There are many math-oriented and language apps that will enhance your students' learning experiences. Students can use these apps during class or at home. Although many of the apps are for younger children, they are also useful for differentiated instruction. The Socratica app can be used in history or English class; UpToDate can be used in an upper level/AP Science class; and Animation Studio works well for student projects.
I love this video because it is created by a high school senior. His app selection focuses on students' needs from a student perspective; therefore, the apps could be shared by content teachers, resource room teachers, and special education teachers.
Heaven on earth? These apps help both new and veteran teachers survive the hefty amount of planning and organization that permeates every part of the job. I have used Writing Prompts and Stanza with success and some of my colleagues in the primary grades have used Alphabytes and My Story.
Although some of these apps have a price tag, the reward is well worth the money spent. Kids tend to enjoy writing and creating on their devices; their work is neater, and easier to store and share. I love the Haiku Poem app and Writing Challenge app for high school students.
Who would you trust to gather information? A librarian, of course!!!! This list includes outstanding apps for projects such as digital storytelling (30Hands) and Adobe Voice. SlideIdea is another effective app for presentations.
