With students and educators increasingly turning to Apple tablets for learning purposes, mobile study service StudyBlue has launched a free iPad app that creates a seamless, cross-platform studying experience. Students can use the StudyBlue app to search, create, and study flashcards and notes with their iPads. Using the tablet’s multimedia features, students can make and edit flashcards using text, voice transcription and images. The app also enables students to re-study concepts they’ve not yet mastered – incorporating Study Filters to personalize the process. “StudyBlue is a must-have app for students in my classroom,” said Tammy Howell, a teacher at Central York School District in Pennsylvania. “Since repetitions and reinforcement increase the familiarity and comfort of study material, this iPad app is the ideal learning tool that allows for an increase in student achievement.” It’s the most recent addition to the company’s suite of mobile study tools, which also includes native apps for iPhone and Android devices. “From computers to phones and now iPads, students can create and study their material anytime, anywhere,” said Becky Splitt, CEO of StudyBlue. “This consistent studying experience enables students to turn normally unproductive time—such as waiting for the bus—into study sessions to improve their comprehension and ultimately master course material.” On iTunes, you can download it.
