Hi Lindsay,

I have a done a series of workshops at UPenn the past six semesters on apps for learning, Tools, Not Toys. Below is a link to a page on our website that lists all the apps we demo in our workshops. It's important to stress to the students that the apps are merely tools to aid learning, and that to maximize the utility of each app it is important to align the purpose/task/goal with the features of the app. In the workshop I guide students in reflecting on the type of app, it's functions and features, how it could potentially help them in their academic life and how they can use the app successfully and them let them demo and even report back with new apps they have discovered and have found more useful for them and their needs. 

The apps listed on the page are apps that we've researched, use, and have good reviews, however for many apps it comes down to a matter of preference; this is not a comprehensive list--more of a start. 

http://www.vpul.upenn.edu/lrc/lr/useful_tools.php

Personally I use Evernote professionally for all of my note-making needs, and I work on two campuses so there's an added bonus that it syncs automatically on all of my devices. It's excellent, free!, app for many purposes. ToDo is also a great app for organizing tasks and time. 

Hope this helps,

Brian

Hi Lindsay,


We have several apps that we use with students during academic counseling.


Blackboard so students can access their syllabi


Dragon Dictation is used with students with Learning Disabilities to show how to use voice to text to write papers


Keynote & Prezi for students who need to make presentations


You Tube to access Khan Academy and other instructional videos


One of my colleagues recommended Wanderlist for time and task management


I just downloaded TheBrain mind mapping app yesterday, but have not tried it out yet.


The Kindle app allows you to purchase an e-book that can be shared with up to 6 (?) devices. I purchased a Math Study Skills book which all of my staff members have been able to read on their iPads.


There are a number of apps for anatomy and physiology but they have a small fee. If you use the same Apple ID on all of your devices, you only need to purchase the app once and then you can download it to the other iPads.


Enjoy!

My department has just acquired a few iPad Airs and we were wondering if anyone had suggestions for apps to use during tutoring sessions for any/all subject areas. We are especially interested in ones that would benefit nursing students, students seeking writing assistance, and students with disabilities.

Thank you for your time!
