Students can get organized, stay productive and learn from a variety of apps for your smart phone or tablet. Options like I-Homework allows students to keep track of their school work.
The application chegg allows you to rent and download textbooks at low prices. Easy bib generates a books citation with just a scan of the barcode. Note taking and sharing is just as simple with applications like evernote and google drive.
And officials say its interesting to see the shift from apps being a distraction in the classroom to being a benefit for students. But they say many students do actually see improvements when they use them.
