Hey hey! Here’s a very quick friday post to say I am on Hallmark Home & Family this morning!
If they’re little tykes, they might dig Endless Wordplay, a fun app that builds letter-sound recognition and helps kids start to spell and rhyme. It’s free, though after three games you’ll need to cough up $7 for more lessons. Highly worth it, if you consider it’s a way to put your kids in front of an iPad for a little while and not feel guilty about it.
For your elementary/middle-schoolers, Photo Math is like having a math tutor in your pocket. Simply take a picture of a math problem (integers, algebra, or any other math problem that’s over a parent’s head), and it will spit out the answer, showing you how it got there, step-by-step. Yes, this could be used to cheat on math homework. But the way I see it, the answer to every thing is on the web these days— kids need to learn how to use tools like this for good, not evil.
Lastly, high school and college kids are up to their eyeballs in exams. Study Blue makes it easy to make your own flash cards and study guides: It tracks your progress through interactive tests and lets you know what you need to review, and what you’ve got in the bag. A $7/month subscription lets you tap into millions of user-generated flash cards and study notes, organized by school, class, and even professor. Plus all your notes travel with you, on every device, so there’s never a moment when you can’t be cramming for that next test.
