Summary of the app 6-8 sentences


Using the data you have collected above, explain why you would or would not recommend this
application for use in the classroom. Include any specific ideas you have for its use.

I would recommend bubble.us for use in a classroom. This is a website that can be accessed
from any internet device. Bubble.us is a visual thinking tool for brainstorming, structuring
information, helping you to better understand, remember and generate new ideas. By
sorting different ideas, you find what column everything belongs in. For example, when
building an essay in an English class, you can make a bubble map. Once having an outline of
a bubble map, each bubble could represent a paragraph you plan to have in your essay.
Once sorting each paragraph with bubbles, you can expand those paragraphs by adding
ideas to those bubbles. At the end, you would have multiple ideas for paragraphs and ideas
within those paragraphs.

Standard:
ISTE Standard; Students know and use a deliberate design process for generating ideas,
testing theories, creating innovative artifacts or solving authentic problems.

I would highly recommend Smart Thinking. Most colleges and universities provide Smart
Thinking for free for their students. Smart Thinking is a website that can be accessed from
any internet device (smartthinking.com). This application allows you to submit a writing
assignment to a tutor online. They will then evaluate your paper and send you feed back.
This would help the student correct errors in their papers. Also, the feedback will give
information on how to become a better writer.

I would recommend ABCMouse.com for early childhood learning classes. This can be
accessed in any internet device through the web or can be downloaded on androids and
apple products. The first month is free and the rest will be $7.95. This app would help
children from ages 2-8 to learn reading, math, science, art, and music. The learning will be
fun because this application is based on games and videos. Kids would pass a mission by
answering the correct answers in a game and they will then move to the next level. The
next level would always get more challenging. Therefore, the kids will enhance their
learning.
Standard:

National standards; are experts at providing children with developmentally appropriate


experiences aimed at helping them meet these expectations. They work to enhance their own
assessment practices and at the same time advocate for appropriate limits on the types and uses
of mandated or standardized testing. They work to inform and influence policy makers with
respect to such topics as licensing requirements and providing reasonable funding.
