Rainbow Sentences - Teachers with Apps

Rainbow Sentences - Teachers with Apps | AppHappy! | Scoop.it

Rainbow Sentences, by Mobile Education Store, is another incredible learning tool, just released, by the award winning developer Kyle Tomson! Initially, when using Rainbow Sentences with students, we were taken aback by how many different levels of play can be adapted for differing student’s needs. There are three levels of play with 55 sentences in each level, and 6 levels of sentence complexity. And though this may sound complicated, it’s not! Rainbow Sentences offers you have a lot of control over the play, but the interface makes it really simple to set up the levels of play. Kyle worked diligently on this app perfecting every feature and made the app customizable with every conceivable setting. Rainbow Sentences offers a unique environment for improving a student’s ability to create grammatically correct sentences.

Cautionary Apps: Episode 9 « techchef4u | AppHappy! | Scoop.it

"This is a supplement to “Appy Hours 4 You” Blog Talk Radio Show: Episode 9 – “Cautionary Apps”. In this episode we were joined by Susan Reeves (App-tastic ITS and Google Certified Teacher). Our topic was cautionary apps: how to review apps, where to find the best apps, and the pedagogical practices behind selecting appropriate apps for classroom use. We also shared a specific list of cautionary edu apps and how teachers can avoid or better prepare instruction around these selections by previewing and preselecting content."
