Here are my recommendations for tutoring sessions in writing and with nursing students.

Writing:
 
Popplet – for making mind maps
 
Inspiration Maps – for making mind maps on the iPad. See
demo at:
http://youtu.be/j7YLupYwDhM
Inspiration Maps Lite is free.
 
Blogsy – I like this, because I can blog offline and then
when I have access to wifi upload my blog. Good for journaling, which I have students do as a way to build long term writing projects like papers.  This app provides drag and drop tools for inserting both photos and videos.

See my first entry at http://walkabout2002.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/qantas-and-ipads/
Blogsy provides excellent video tutorials and wonderful tech
support, much appreciated on my walkabout in Australia.
 
Goodreader – PDF reader with annotating ability
To PDF – to pull a writing document into a PDF for
annotations during a writing tutoring session
 
Nursing:
 
Myscript calculator – free screen capture calculator that
you can writeout problem, and it will
put it into numeric form, i.e. square root as well as do regular calculations.
Very useful for dosage calculation problems, when students just want to cancel
numbers without looking at the units, without reading the doctor’s order and checking
out the drugs on hand!
 
 
Studyblue – make your own flash cards for vocabulary terms
as you go along
 
The Elements – Touch Press. Periodic Table in 3D  $13.99 iPad, iPhone, Mac 

Learning the periodic table with never be the same after this gorgeous 3 D version. Check out gold and get all the scientific information, plus back stories on the largest nugget ever found and then find out today's spot price for gold!  Should be a reference item in the center.

 
A Photographic Atlas. Anatomy & Physiology
Laboratory.  Inkling. Designed for iPad. (Works
also in Web browser, iPhone and Android) $1.99per chapter or  $34.99for full book.

21 chapters.  More
than 460 images, E-rays and micrographs. Hide the text in the labels and test
yourself.  Students can buy just the
chapters they need at $1.99!  Full
version includes a glossary of prefixes and suffixes with definition and
example. Tutoring Center may want one full copy on hand or may customize a copy
for your nursing and A&P program. Try one chapter “Integumentary System”
for free.
 
Finally, watch for apps being posted on Study Skills | Howtostudy.org - When you hit the books - and they hit back. both in the blog
and in the side bars on the appropriate pages.  The site is currently undergoing a major renovation to make it easier
for me to post apps and you tube videos.

I just got this today - the link in the second email  (
http://www.vpul.upenn.edu/lrc/lr/useful_tools.php) is interesting. If you
go into their training site from that link, they have an interesting set
up. Thought it might be pertinent to iPad requests we're getting.
