6. P183 Graphing Calculator
For: Math Classes
What it Does: Everything a TI-83 Calculator does, much cheaper!
For: Astronomy Classes
What it Does: When held up to the night sky, it shows constellations,
planets and other items of interest in that region of the sky.
For: All Classes
What it Does: Allows students & teachers to create flashcards and tests and to share with others.
9. Essay Grader
For: Teachers grading essays.
What it Does: Allows teachers to grade essays using a bank of comments so
as to avoid handwriting the same comments over & over. The
gradesheet can then be emailed to the student.
For: Teachers looking for feedback on student comprehension

Iphones; the app compiles the answers showing which subject areas need
Teachers and students alike are quickly catching on to the ways in which technology can make their lives easier and better. Today’s students are already glued to their Iphones. Maybe we should take advantage of this trend to help our students learn!
