5 Apps to Enhance mLearning
In a K-12 School Setting
This would be really fun to use in an elementary school setting (most likely in grades 4-6), in an English language arts class, Social Studies, or in a second language class. It would give students a fun and creative way of demonstrating their knowledge of the topic at hand, create a fun presentation for their teacher/peers, and they would also have a presentation that they could re-watch as preparation for quizzes, exams, etc.
Recommended Grade Levels: 4-6
Bunsella Bedtime Stories
This could prove beneficial in a Junior High setting, as it is presented as a bit less-childish than, for example, Toontastic. Students could use this in an English class, a second language class, a science class, a social studies class, or even a drama class! This app would prove an excellent way for students to demonstrate their knowledge on a topic or make a presentation for their fellow classmates!
Recommended Grade Levels: 7-9
This would be useful in an Elementary or early Junior High setting in an English class, or in a High School setting in a second language class, as the journal prompts are very simple. Journal Jar is an excellent and simple way to get students writing, and get them engaged. It would also be interesting for their teacher to read their responses, because if students were "Shaking the Jar" on their individual devices, each student would potentially be given a different prompt. That being said, the teacher could also choose to "Shake the Jar" for the entire class to create the same writing prompt for each student.
Recommended Grade Levels: ELA Grades 2-7. Second Language Classes Grades 8-11
This could be useful in a High School setting for a few different reasons. One reason is that if a student was writing a research paper, this app allows them to gather and organize all of their resources into one place for re-reading or re-looking at at a later time. Another reason is that it would be useful for the teacher because it allows them to gather classroom materials and teaching materials and save them to a singular location to bring up to their class later.
BONUS: when you save something into your pocket, you do NOT need an internet connection to go back and look at it!
Recommended Grade Levels: 10-12
This could prove beneficial in a late Junior High, or High School setting in a second language class. It is a fun way for students to enhance their learning of a second language, practice for quizzes and tests, and track their personal progress.
Recommended Grade Levels: 8-12
