I teach ages: 3 to 22
Cool tool for referencing research; integrates with Evernote
Cute way to practice math facts (basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with three difficulty levels.
Collection of math games for Kindergartners to build number sense, measurement, geometry, and probability skills. Cute prizes to build confidence.
Basically, this app snaps a picture of a group of post-it notes. Not so exciting, but the coolness comes when you can move the notes around. You can create groups, sequences, storyboards, flowcharts, and much more. Creations can be saved as an image or a file that can be opened on another device using the app. Possibilities are endless. Great way to capture learning and thinking!
Nice selection of multimedia for pre-readers. Highlighting and clickable words promote reading independence, word recognition, and vocabulary development. It is subscription-based, so hard for schools that have VPP (volume purchase plan) because we can’t do in-app purchases.
An great way to teach programming to students!
Great for gamifying the writing process!
Cool way to generate random names for writing and pseudonyms
Great way to discover classical music and the instruments involved.
Cool way to use non-standard units of measurement.
Nice app for demonstrating the number line and introducing students to visual math models.
Challenging math game. Great for strategic thinking and problem solving!
Basically digital flash cards, but nice that you can customize the settings to differentiate for various learning levels. Includes addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Nice glossary of scientific terms, people, etc. Not all terms are included, but quite a few. Also includes links to online modules sponsored by Vision Learning.
A fun way to learn to count, add and subtract. Uses multitouch to count the number of fingers resting on the screen.
This is a fantastic way to view properties of elements and element compounds using augmented reality.
