Appy Friday!

Today some students read a short nonfiction passage, then scanned the question sheet that went with it, highlighted their answers right on their iPod or iPad, then emailed it to me.

The app was Fasterscan.

Students were so excited with this today! No pencil, just their iPod or iPad! AND they were gladly reading!! A win win.

A Fun App for an English Language Learner

I had fun with this one:

“Over” from Potluck.
It allows you to type over a photo.
A new student, that spoke no English, wandered the school with me and with my ipad. He took pictures of his classmates and teachers. Together we added names over the photos. After that I used the Pic Stitch app from Big Blue Clip to put the labelled photos into a collage and print them.
It was a fun way to begin learning names.

Speech Therapy App

Another app. I like this one for articulation practice. You can choose a target sound and record the speech for instant feedback. You can choose whether the target sound will be in the beginning, middle, or end of the word. Best of all, it’s free!

Talking App

I love this app!

It’s a talking calculator and it has improved student accuracy on a calculator! So many of my students were not accurate with a calculator – pressing the wrong buttons. With this app they hear their mistake. When they do make a mistake they can backspace rather than starting all over. Love the multi-sensory approach.
I love using this app. It has improved my speed, accuracy, and confidence in my calculations.

The app is free but adding the voice costs a bit. Also, be sure to have headphones if others are around.
