iPad apps every student should have
With the new one-to-one program’s iPads flooding into Hilliard’s classrooms this year, the future of education as we know it is being changed. Of course, Notability, Explain Everything, and Canvas are some of the most commonly used apps in the classroom, but there are a few other apps that can be beneficial to the student in his or her day-to-day life.
There are a couple of apps that are preferred by your teachers depending on what classes you are taking this year. For example, for someone taking a foreign language, the Duolingo app may be recommended by your teachers as a way to study vocabulary and grammar outside of class.
Extracurriculars and teachers might also have a Remind system set up through Remind101. Through the Remind app, you can keep all of your notifications in one place for ease of access.
If flashcards and mini games are something that helps you to study things, the Quizlet app might be perfect for you, especially for vocabulary quizzes and foreign language classes.
Something else that can help you remember your assignments and their due dates would be a planner app. Luckily, there are a wide variety of these to choose from in the app store.
Recently, coloring books have seen a rise in popularity, with a number of students using them as stress relievers. There are many of these within the app store, like Color Therapy, though most feature in-app purchases.
Finally, there is only one app that can tell you about all of the recent news within Hilliard Darby High School, and that is none other than the Panther Press app, which, of course, is free.
With all of the new and useful potential programs at our fingertips, the words of 2009 iPhone 3S commercial have never been more true. Without a doubt, there’s an app for that.
