EDU 210 Mobile Apps
Perfect for K-12 classrooms
This Web 2.0 mobile app is a perfect idea generator. When using this in my classroom, which will hopefully be an English one, I will be able to use this app to generate a topic for my students to write about. With the use of iPads in my classroom this interactive app will keep my students engaged and hopefully motivated to write about an original idea.
Choose Your Path
This app is another type of idea generator. Stories are presented and students are able to choose what happens next as well as choose their own endings. This type of app is a great way to get students thinking about multiple different ways in which they can approach events in a story.
MindBlowing is an exciting mind mapping application. This Web 2.0 app takes pen and paper mind mapping into digital format. On iTunes, some reviews are not overly positive, but there are some that are positive about the future and the new developments being made. There have been new developments made to improve this application, and when one thinks about it, technology is always developing and always improving so the future use of this application should be bright as students and schools are continually bringing in new technologies (iPhones, iPads, etc) in order to be able to accommodate these applications.
