Suggested Apps and Support

The following is a list of apps that have been recommended by the students involved in the 1:1 program over the past 2 years. By no means is this list complete, however, it is a sample of some of the apps that our students have found powerful and beneficial to enhance their learning and overall 1:1 experience.  Please feel free to sample some of the apps that have been suggested, or search for apps and programs that better suit your individual learning needs. In essence, most of this selection is based on personal preference. Purchasing the apps below is not required, but this is simply a guide to help you navigate through the endless number of apps to choose from. We strongly recommend students become fluent and competent with a few number of apps and programs, rather than using several that complete similar tasks.
