Apps for Class

My classes are moving towards a “Bring Your Own Device” atmosphere, where studenmts are permitted to bring in their own computing devices, both standard and mobile, to use in class.  I am now using iPads for students who do not have their own device.  

This page will contain a list of free apps that they are encouraged to load onto their iPod, iPad, or smartphone.  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.
