Nowadays, a lot of students study with a computer or tablet device. Access to the Web gives them a tremendous amount of knowledge, though much of it isn’t actually useful, relevant, or even correct.

Fortunately, art teacher Kelly Little curates a collection of classroom-tested “study buddies” to help your students filter the flood of information out there.

What apps do your students use to help them study?

  • LectureMonkey

    I’d like to suggest another – LectureMonkey. LectureMonkey is an app that lets students use an iPhone to capture a lecture (boards, presentation, audio) in a very condensed format (not video) for later review. The result is automatically stored in the students Dropbox and be viewed on the web at http://www.lecturemonkey.com (or using the app).

    Students can annotate the lecture with comments and easily share it with classmates. the app is available here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lecturemonkey/id547592845?mt=8 and the website is http://www.lecturemonkey.com

  • Stick Around

    Our app is great for studying! Instead of making flashcards, you make learning puzzles. Students can create puzzles where they can label, sort, or match items. Stick Around is built on top of Explain Everything, so you might already be familiar with the drawing and export tools.
