5 iOS apps for Personal Mobile Learning

Wiki Speaker

Wiki Speaker reads out loud the content from wikipedia. this is a great feature to have as a research tool for students that may not be the most efficient at reading. as it reads the content full screen slides pop up to give students a better visual understanding of the content as well.

Construction Calc

This app is great for doing math using imperial measurement because it allow you to punch in the fractions. This will allow students to work with imperial measurement which is the most common form of measurement used in the carpentry trade with out spending to much time converting the decimals each time they need to make a calculation.
