Feature Friday: Education Apps

It’s that time of year, summer is wrapping up and it’s time to get back in the swing of school. Of course you’re probably already thinking of pens, pencils and notebooks, but what about apps? Here’s a list to get you started.

For high school students:
 iHomework: A great way to stay organized and on top of your assignments. This app allows you to input information about homework, teachers and other engagements, so you’ll never fall behind.

For college students:
Mental case Flashcards: Better than paper flashcards, these digital memory aids can include text, images and even videos. Then, you can test yourself using a slideshow of the flashcards you’ve created.

Around Me: If you’re a freshman in a new city, this is the perfect app for acquainting yourself with your new home; you’ll quickly become an expert about your surroundings!

For teachers:
Nearpod: An amazing way to interact and engage with students, this app allows teachers to seamlessly share presentations, quizzes, polls and more with their students through iPads. It also allows teachers to see their students’ responses in real time.

For everyone:
Documents to Go: Once school starts up again, and you find yourself always on the go, no worries about being unable to access your documents. Using this app, you can tap into any of your Microsoft Office documents, wherever and whenever.

iBooks Author: You can now make iBooks—complete with interactive elements, like movies and Keynote presentations—through your iPad. It’s simple to use and when you’re done, all you do is submit to the iBookstore, and you’re a published author!

And, of course, don’t forget Yapp! Here are just some of the ways you can use Yapp for your school endeavors this year.

And finally, a big thanks to education expert and Yapp user Naomi (@nharm) for her awesome suggestions! Check her out here.
