In her edWeb.net webinar, “Using Technology to Engage Learning, Communication & Relationships,” Tamara Kaldor mentioned several apps which help kids to be independent, which is important starting in 5th grade and especially in high school. Kaldor said apps might not be needed if the device’s calendar function does the job. For example, to make sure she remembered her locker combination, Kaldor’s daughter simply put the code in the calendar alarm, which she scheduled to appear about the time she needed to open her locker.
30/30 (Free for iPhone, iPad) is an icon-based productivity manager which allows kids to make lists of tasks and the amount of time to get them done. Kaldor uses it to block calls on her phone when she is working. Some Android users say that Self TODO (Free for Android) is a decent substitute for 30/30.
