Since Time Magazine featured Evernote in its  November 11 issue, I thought is was fitting to feature Evernote.  Evernote offers an app center.  Yes, I said center.  Evernote offers a suite of apps for education for most platforms.  Set aside a bit of time when you take a look at this treasure trove of tools.  You might want to start by watching the overview.

Week of November 4

This week's selection comes to you from smartappsforkids.com.  I receive an email every day from them with opportunities for free apps, both iOS and Android.  I decided to highlight MyArtic today because while it is labeled a medical app some of your colleagues and parents may find it very valuable.  The app is designed to help children with speech sounds. Once sold for over $30, it is now free and available for iPhone and iPad.  It is listed as coming soon for Android device.
