Is there an App for that?

A question asked by many who want to find a way to make life easier.  Apps are cool software that provide fun and educate us. My students have been doing some research on different types of apps and how they can use them for their individual blogs. There are so many apps out there that it’s difficult to decide on any particular one. The students’ blogs are varied and so are the apps they found for each. Seems like for every blog there’s an app for it.

Students who were interested in physical activities found apps on swimming, fitness, soccer, basketball, and surfing. Those interested in foods found a wide variety of apps related to that topic. At the academic level, students discovered apps on math, the sciences, languages and history. And those who were keen on leisure activities and vacation places found apps such as TripAdvisor and Google Earth.

In the process of looking for apps to use with their blogs, the students discovered others they could use for their own personal use and quickly downloaded these to their portable electronic devices.  I got the impression that these would soon become favorites.

I wonder if there’s an app for a student who doesn’t do his assignment? I’ll have to check that one out for myself! ~~LMM
