Flipboard Review by Joicee

Flipboard is a magazine app. 
You can follow topics you like and enjoy. 
There are many interesting topics such as technology, crafts, drawing, photography, and more. I think that the app is fun. 
You can save things that you want to read later.

StudyBlue and Quizlet Review by Jillian P. and Noel



Study Blue:


There are many things that you can do with Study Blue, like add pictures and voice memo's to go with the information you put on your virtual flashcards. You can also use this app for remembering words in another language rather than just a word and the definition of the word.  

You may encounter problems like glitches and some lag when trying to transition into each section to edit it. Also when I tryed to add in the pictures it was very slow and overall a frustrating process. But it's FREE!

Quizlet:

Quizlet is a FREE website and app to review certain subjects. You can join classes, make flashcards, and change languages. 

The downside of Quizlet is you can’t translate languages unless you manually change them. The website is good for studying,teachers making flashcards, and quizzes. Students can’t use Quizlet without a teacher to make the cards or information.

Zaption Review



Zaption is a learning application that helps students learn different things using                         videos. Zaption teaches by asking you questions when you're watching a video, much like Educanon. It teaches in different subjects, different grades, and isn't timed so you can finish at your own pace. This website can teach in various subjects such as math, politics, music, debates, science, art etc.

We felt like it is a useful site, but it was a little bit confusing because it contained so much information. We would recommend that it’s more for teachers use in the classroom than for students to use independently.
