Mobile Apps for the K-12 Classroom

For this module, we were asked to research and find five different apps that we would think be beneficial for use in the classroom. With each app listed there is an example of how it can be applied in the class to help students overall learning.


Evernote is provided as a free and easy to use app that can help students stay organized and remember content more easily across all the movie devices a student may use. This app allows for user to take notes, capture photos, create to do lists, and record voice reminders. This app allows for the user to be able to search for any of these notes or documents at any time and any place on their devices.

Students would be able to have this app on their on their mobile devices where they can take notes and recordings in class and be able to review and look at it from practically anywhere outside of class, whether it be on their phone, laptop or home computer.

ClassDojo would be probably be more in use in an elementary class setting. It acts as a classroom management platform for teachers to encourage any skill and behaviour in the class and keep parents in up to date on how their children are doing. Teachers can also put different sets of students into groups, offering a simple way for teachers to award table points and foster a collaborative classroom culture.

Teachers can broadcast a message to all parents (such as sharing a reminder, assignment, homework, or permission slip), and also send private, meaningful communications like text messages and photos so that parents are connected to the classroom without the hassle of emails and school newsletters.

Quilt is a free website providing learning tools for students, including flashcards, study and game modes. Quilt can be used both in and out of the classroom. Teachers can create flashcards for their students and create a class so students can study, share, and discuss their material.

For example a teacher can create a quiz and accompanying flash cards for his/her biology class to help students study and practice for an upcoming exam.

PhotoMath is a free mobile app that can read and solve mathematical expressions using your smartphone camera in real time. The app also provides a step-by-step guide showing how each of the problems are solved.

This would be beneficial for students in a math class that aren't quite grasping the subject matter. They can use this app to aid in homework and if they're stuck on a question and aren't able to contact the teacher.
