    Hi Friends- I'm new to the forum. Does anyone know where I can find reviews and info for education apps? OR, do you have any apps that have been successful in your classroom?

    Please share and let's get some cool ideas flowing on this thread:)

    My kids loved Kahoot! for test reviews. I like that it logs the data.

    I really like NearPod and am exploring various ways to use it. It was great for test review but I also discovered I like using it for vocabularly (doing pictionary). You can add powerpoints, videos, maps, quizzes, etc. You can have students label, highlight, or draw. There's probably more, too. And, like Kahoot!, it logs data.

    Yes. There are paid versions but I never needed them.

    Thanks to all of you for sharing your apps and app collections. The kids in my school love Kahoot. I am going to work with it in the last few weeks of my vacation so I can use it this year. Anything that will keep them involved! I've dedicated this summer to me - reading what I want, napping, visiting - anything but school (very unusual for me) and I have totally enjoyed it. Now I'm easing back in and visiting this site among others. Good luck this year!
