DatalyzeMe: So.. How in the world am I supposed to review an app I designed myself? Bottom line – a lot of thought went into this app. A touch controversial, it begins by asking the user to take a survey based on Learning Styles. Then the user logs their favourite subjects and the ones that they had the most trouble with. They can generate a chart based on those logs.

The user can also log how their time is spent, create a nightly graph and even generate a weekly graph to Pin, Tweet or FB. They also have the ability to generate a weekly report that explains what their priorities are based on how they spent their time! It takes less than 5 minutes to use and becomes such a powerful tool!  The user can also collect reward badges for every milestone they reach for logging! (This feature coming end of March!)

Book Creator: When it’s time for my Kindergartner and I to sit down for some reading time, we often decide to write a book together instead. Create stories and post them in your iBook library that will make your child feel like a conjurer of mystic places and exciting stories. Redefine ‘quiet’ time as ‘creative time’ both at home and in the class.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jing by Techsmith: Hey wait a minute, this isn’t an iPhone app! I couldn’t resist showcasing one of the most useful applications for PC or MAC for screen recordings or screen captures.  With a 5 minute max recording time, this little app ensures that educators say what they need to say concisely. Prep, record, publish to YouTube and VOILA – a digital library of tutorials for your students to reference when needed. Best of all – it’s free!
