Flashcard Hero allows users to create digital flash cards to help students study difficult spelling or difficult science terms. Flashcard Hero also allows students to quiz themselves without having to be too dependent on others for help. Teachers and students can download pre-made cards, create their own, or use the app to take notes in class that are later converted to cards.

Fotobabble

Fotobabble is an app that allows users to create and share talking photos.

Users need to upload a photo to their website, then recording a voice comment, and then share the talking photo with other students, friends, and family.

This app could be used for school projects such as making talking postcards from vacations, narrating a story behind a photo, or adding audio and visual elements to learning when learning new words or concepts.

Google Drive

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service provided by Google. This service allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and collaborate with other users to edit documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings and forms.

Google Drive is also developing its service to be more accessible to visually challenged users by having improved keyboard accessibility, support for zooming and high contrast mode.

For education when homework or lessons are stored in Google Drive, it allows students to access that information anywhere and anytime. Therefore, students can collaborate on written documents, spreadsheets, and presentations to edit them in "real time." There doesn't need to be multiple copies of a written document when using Google Drive. Teachers can also add comments on the documents for students to read and access at school or home.

World Explorer allows users to take virtual walks in streets around the world while learning about the monuments and other sites they may see along those "walks." The app has information on over 350,000 locations.


World Explorer would be good for a history teacher wanting to give context about a monument, site, or city they are teaching about. It is also great for language teachers wanting to cover more about a language's native country, and even math teachers, who can make use of its ability to measure distances in miles and kilometres.
