Kanbanchi Project Management Tool

Kanbanchi is a free education app that allows teachers and students to visually monitor projects. There are templates for lesson plans, newsletters, and classroom work that help users get started. Kanbanchi was designed to help teachers and students manage project-based learning.

Once you set up a dashboard you can populate it with cards to help track different aspects of a project. The cards can be different colors, assigned to specific people, given a start date, due date, and have an estimate for how long it will take to complete that specific task, and be given a priority from low to high. 

Here are just some of the things you can do with Kanbanchi:
  • Create an unlimited number of dashboards and cards
  • Share with an unlimited number of collaborators
  • Push due dates to Google Calendar
  • Attach files from Google Drive
  • Sort and filter cards as needed
  • Import your Trello boards

Science Journal App from Google

The Google Science Journal is a digital science notebook that provides users with one location to store notes, photos, and observations. It works with Android devices, iPhones, iPads, and Chromebooks.

The Google Science Journal allows users to conduct experiments involving light, motion, sound, and air pressure using sensors that are already built into the phone. External sensors can be used to connect to several Bluetooth-enabled devices from Arduino and Vernier. All of the data  collected collected using this app is turned into graphs and charts which are easy to interpret.

Applications for Education
This app is a mobile science lab which students can take anywhere in order to conduct experiments. Students can collect data, take photos, and record observations while in the field. This is an exciting and practical way to incorporate cell phones into the learning process.
