MOBILE APPS FOR USE WITH GRADE K-12
Teachley: Addimal Adventure
This app could be used in class for any kind of maths problem and then be used to set homework if necessary. All types of maths problems can be set and, because the teacher can set up a bespoke programme, it can reflect and incorporate other class topics.
Google earth could be used in the classroom to look at other countries design when doing a geography project. Distances between countries can be measured, the street layout can be observed and even hiking trails and in time flights can be seen. This may be helpful if doing a project o the environment.
Science Heroes: Digestive System for Kids
This app could be used as part of a science lesson, in particular, biology where digestion is being studied.
National Geographic Kids Alive
This app can be used in a geography or social studies class. Rather than just watching videos, there is commentary alongside from Max and Taz, who are children, to make the experience more fun.
This app could be used in many ways in the classroom, for example a drama project about spacemen, a research project about space, a maths project calculating the position of stars and planets or a geography project looking at different planets.
