This week’s app comes to you from Kayla,’  a teen who works as a page at my library. The other day she came to tell me about the easy way she was doing biology homework on her phone. Since she was using the app, and if I downloaded it I would not have a class to practice with, I asked Kayla to tell us about how it works:

“Your teacher can upload multiple choice questions for you to answer for homework. They can limit how many times you can answer them, so it can give you a challenge by only having you do it once, or you can re-do it a few times and fix your mistakes. It’s a good learning site, because it’s hands on.’  It’s a good way to review for big tests because the multiple choice questions reflect what you’ve done in class.’  Teachers and students can post notes on it, and can comments on each other’s notes.’  You can look at the schedule for future assignments.’  You can put photos, vidoes, and files from drop box to share with the class. Students might upload their notes.”
