Management and Organization APPS


The Evernote app helps you and students stay organized by quickly adding notes, creating to-do lists, and reminders. The app also has the ability to capture photographs and voice recordings.

Tip: Tag your notes for easy search and discover ability.


The Schoology app allows teachers and students to stay connected 24/7 to their learning management system. Assignments can be assigned, submitted, graded, and returned on the go. Also teachers can create messages, task lists, and keep everyone informed.

Tip: Students can view assignments, collaborate with their peers, and get assistance on a variety of mobile devices.

Socrative AND

The Socrative app turns devices into student response clickers providing an engaging way for students to participate and interact in the learning experience. Socrative provides teachers real-time feedback and allows assessment to be an integral and immediate part of the instructional experience.

Tip: Teachers can use the Socrative app to collect assessment data that can be sent to them as a Google spreadsheet or an Excel file.
