Wendy Kuda's insight:

Cargo-Bot looks like a wonderful app to use with my enrichment class.  From easy to hard levels, with many varied games, the user programs a robot to accomplish a task.  This is a terrific app for future computer software engineers.

Wendy Kuda's insight:

Explain Everything is another app we have loaded on our iPads at Doherty Middle School.  Using this app, students can create their own multi-media presentations using audio and or video of themselves, clips from the internet, powerpoint slides (or similar), screen shots and more. Our Media Specialist, Barbara Murray, has already given our 7th grade students an introduction to this versatile tool and we can't wait to use it on an upcoming Probability project.

IXL Maths | Online maths practice and lessons

IXL Maths | Online maths practice and lessons | Middle School Education | Scoop.it
IXL is the Web's most comprehensive maths practice site. Popular among educators and families, IXL provides unlimited questions in more than 2,500 topics. An adaptive learning system, featuring games and awards, inspires students to achieve.
Wendy Kuda's insight:

At Doherty Middle School, we have a license to use IXL software.  We have the app installed on our iPads and students can go to ixl.com and use the software from home as well.  I use IXL oftwen with my 7th grade pre-algebra students to practice skills.  I like the way the pre-algebra topics are aligned with the core curriculum.  I like the way a student gets instant help if he/she gets a wrong answer.  There is a varying levl of difficulty, i.e. good for differentiation.  I get a comprehensive report for each student with info such as # of problems attempted, % correct, content area practiced.  IXL is not a free app.

Wendy Kuda's insight:

Buddypoke is an app that let's you create your own animated story.  I plan on giving it as an option to my students in an upcoming probability project where they need to create a 3 minute presentation explaining probability concepts.
