Apps for Class

We are now using Chromebooks, with each student having their own to carry with them.  For years my classes shared iPads as a computing platform.  This page will list apps and add-ons we use in class for learning.  All of the apps listed will be free.  

This page will contain a list of free apps that they are encouraged to load onto their iPod, iPad, or smartphone for home use.  The apps can be found in the iTunes Store or Android Market.   Apps that are underlined are linked to their respective sites.

This page is currently under construction, please check back  soon for more information.

The following apps are available on both Mac and Android platforms and will be used extensively throughout  all of my classes.
