Nessy Mobile Applications.

In a Tech-savvy world, apps make life easier for all of us as we navigate life.  For students they can provide additional teaching opportunities or supports for multisensory learners.  You can find an app for just about everything, from  a spelling support like an audible dictionary app or a homework app that can help you prioritize tasks and send reminders.  There are others that focus on teaching.  Apps that are fun and interactive help us gain fluency in tasks like math facts or spelling without feeling like “work”.  There are thousands out there and it can be overwhelming to sift through them all. Here are some of the best we have discovered and range in audience from kindergarten to college.
