How I Use It
This app could be used to set reminders for important tasks. Students can put in dates assignments are due and have reminders sent to their email addresses. I would have students use this app to keep track of when homework assignments are due and when tests will be given.
This app could be used as a teaching tool to aid students in being responsible for remembering important dates. One very nice feature of this app is the memo feature. Students can actually take notes right in the app. For example, if you review for a test, they can take notes here of what the key points are for the test and what you want them to know. Let's say you tell the students there is a test next Monday. They can program that date into this app and then click on it and a notepad will pop up where they can place any notes for the assignment or test.
There are a lot of apps out there for maintaining a virtual date book and some might be more advanced or more eye catching but for those who just need the basics or are new to basic concepts, this app is great for simply keeping track of dates. I really like the note feature and the ability to send reminders to your email. Again, not much offered for looks or detail, but it does the trick.
