Studying on your computer or phone

back_to_school_appsTeacher’s often dread the presence of cell phones in their classrooms as tools of distraction and cheating on tests. But they don’t have to be. With the proliferation of mobile electronic devices there has also been the creation of some excellent tools students can use to study, takes notes and learn. Here is a list of a few that work well for any student of any age, whether they want to learn something new or just practice for an upcoming test. And all of these apps are free!

  • Evernote:
    This app allows students to take notes that can be organized into different folders (called notebooks) and can be tagged to create another level of organization. The notes are searchable, you can highlight and cross out text and the notes sync on the Evernote app across all devices!
  • Cerego:
    Cerego is a website and app that makes other flashcard apps seem rudimentary and ineffectual by comparison. Students can create many different types of flashcards depending on the subject they’re studying. Once the flashcards are created Cerego tracks how often the student studies, shows a countdown timer as a reminder of when to study next and gives an estimation of how many more times the flashcards need to be studied before the student has memorized them. Cerego is an excellent app for practicing good study habits! Cerego for learners
  • Doulingo:
    For students who are having a hard time learning a foreign language, Doulingo is an excellent resource. Duolingo teaches foreign languages by beginning with basic phrases and vocabulary and slowly adding more words and more difficult grammar. And the entire learning experience is set up as a game! Students answer questions to pass levels and receive experience points that allow them to progress. Students also receive bonuses for advancing levels or answering every question correctly, and can even play with each other. Duolingo has a feature for tracking how well students are learning individual words and to remind students to practice.
