A description of mLearning in the classroom

Splash Math

Splash Math is a series of apps made for ages 5-11, or kindergarten to grade 5, to reinforce math concepts. It works self-paced so students can work on the concepts that they struggle with the most at any pace they need. It covers topics from basic operations to geometry to data and graphs. In the classroom it would be a great practice tool for free learning centres or review of learnt/ past topics.

A+ Spelling Test

This app is a fun way to learn spelling words. You can create lists with as many words as you like. You record your voice saying the words and the students can either practice or tests. Both will give you instant corrections if you spelled the word incorrectly.

It can be used in the class to teach or practice spelling.

Sock Puppets

An interesting twist on normal storytelling, Sock Puppets will record your voice and turn it into a sock puppet telling your tale! It lip-syncs your voice so it looks like the puppet is telling your short story. A fun, engaging way to get kids to share their stories in class because you can upload them to YouTube and play them for the class!
