The New Media Consortium published its 2012 report (view the short YouTube version here) about trends in higher education and listed apps as an emerging trend for instructional use. Here are a few articles that cover hot or best apps for education:
- “Ten Great Free Educational Apps for the iPad”
- “10 Best iPhone Apps for College Students”
- “iPod, iPad, and Android Apps for College Students”
Many of the apps in these lists are free, including myHomework for iPhone (which helps students keep track of assignments), Evernote for iPhone (which allows students to record notes and lectures), and StudyBlue for Apple products (which lets students make flash cards and take them everywhere).
What apps do you use that students might find useful?
