LanSchool Releases New App on iTunes
LanSchool has released a new app on iTunes called the LanSchool Student. The LanSchool Student is available free in the iTunes App Store. It supports iOS3 and iOS4 and runs on iPads, iPods and iPhones.
The LanSchool Student app is primarily a student response system. The students can respond to true/false and multiple choice questions sent from the Teacher console or Teacher's Assistant. Teachers can also see a thumbnail and monitor the charge of the battery. Students can ask a teacher a question without raising their hands.
There is no cost for the student app on iTunes, but you must be running the Teacher Console v188.8.131.52 or later.
LanSchool has also released an update to the Teacher's Assistant so that it supports both iOS3 and iOS4. It will now run on iPads, iPods and iPhones.
At ISTE 2010 LanSchool attended the IEAR.org Birds of a Feather event. It was very exciting to see all of the new educational apps and we highly recommend visiting http://www2.lanschool.com/e/2262/2010-08-05/2Q528/163646218. It is a wonderful site run by teachers that reviews apps for education.
