This could be used in any classroom as supplementary teaching. Students can be assigned to watch certain tutorials before class (at home) and then teachers can work through material and answer questions while the students practice the concepts they've learned in class.
Students can create comic book scenes on particular subjects that they can present to the class. For example, students could create an anti-bullying message using the program and present it to the class at a later date.
Although it may seem simple, this could be a useful application for students. It encourages independent reading since it allows students more freedom to read on the go. Also, the addition of reading assistance tools makes reading more accessible for any student.
BrainQuest: Blast Off (different grade versions)
This application is not only helpful for studying purposes, but it is also fun. This would make a useful consolidating activity for teachers if they chose the subjects appropriately. Students can practice what they have learned as well as interact with others in a fun manner.
While this is more suited to younger grades, teachers can add the weekly spelling words and vocabulary and students can practice and learn at home on their own. It would be a very effective addition to regular studying tools.
