5 mobile apps to use in a High School classroom

Ko-Su

Ko-su is a mobile app that all students can download for free on their devices and I can set up a classroom that they can all join where we can review answers, write comments, look up results and send feedback on the class. A concrete example of how this can be used in a high school class is that it could be used: the teacher could deliver everyone's marks to a test and the marked test back to all the students over the weekend instead of waiting till the following day of school. This gives the student's who are eager to know how they did on the test a chance to look at their mark over the weekend.

Math Pro

Math Pro is a free application for mobile devices that that has over 15 000 math worksheets from grade 5 to grade 12. This would be very beneficial in a high school math classroom as students could get lots of extra practice on their math homework. The only way to get better at math is to do math so this would be a great app to practice. You could also use this as review for students to review previous years math work or for their upcoming tests.

Periodic Table Explorer

Periodic Table Explorer is a free application for smart devices that allows the student to search any of the elements on the periodic table, their compositions, physical appearances, reactions and other chemical properties. This would be useful in a high school chemistry class especially for tests, instead of printing off a bunch of periodic tables for the students to save paper some could use their smart phones to use this app instead.
