Exploring Mobile Technology & Apps
I reviewed some math and language arts apps: math drills, alphabet/phonics/spelling.
I downloaded a few on my Iphone to practice. I thought the 'math drills lite' was good because it showed a number line to help explain the problem. I also liked the immediate feedback that these apps had. However, a few of the free apps were only short samples. If you wanted the full app, you had to buy it.
I think students (of all ages) will love to use the ITouch/Pad in class. If it is like the Iphone, it is relatively easy to use. In my classroom, I would probably use these for warmups or independent practice.
