Summary-
The Sight Words app is very simple and easy to use. It covers the basic needs of learning age appropriate
words. Sight Words offer a set of flash cards, memory and sound matching games, and bingo. This app has
pk-3 grade but I think old students would not like this app and it would not keep their attention long.
However, I think this would integrate well with our beginning English learning students since it is easier
to use and it says the words out loud while trying to find a match. The app can be accessed through
iTunes, Google Play and on amazon.

Summary-
How cool would it be to create a comic strip to help understand a subject? I think this app would really
benefit the students to make a not so fun lesson GREAT. Using Strip Designer, a student can layout an
event to get a better visual idea of a concept. The app is all inclusive with built in templets or design your
own, stickers, and fonts. It can sync with iCloud to access from anywhere. Save and send through email or
share on social networks.

Summary-
Using Google Slides, students can generate an information based presentation to be addressed. The
possibilities to add content, maps, and charts will further assist with data comparison and analyses.
Google is a platform that can be linked between devices for easy access and can be shared for peer
participation and feedback. It also, does not require internet so the student can work on their slides from
anywhere. Google Slides can open and be used through Microsoft PowerPoint. In addition, the student
can also offer their presentation straight from the mobile device including the iPod, iPad, and the iPhone.
