CK-12 Launches its Free Educational iPad App studyNow!
As schools across the country are deploying more technology in the classrooms, especially tablets (what with their multi-touch screens, light weight design, and simple, albeit highly specialized, functionalities for an innumerable range of apps) and moving to 1-to-1 classrooms, CK-12 has launched its FREE Educational iPad App- CK-12 studyNOW! The app helps students find and learn K-12 content in an easy and intuitive manner. Students can now learn at their own pace and in their own way (Video, Interactive Objects, Read, etc.).Teachers can use this app to help keep their kids engaged in the classroom and find supplemental material for their class.
The new experience re-imagines CK-12's huge library of Free K-12 Science and Math content (free digital textbooks and concepts) for the iPad, taking full advantage of multi-touch and the new retina display. This app helps open up never before accessible avenues for teaching through new types of media and the opportunity for students to learn in all different kinds of modalities (thorugh videos, text, images, assessment, lesson plans etc). Staying consistent with our theme of being “flexible" this Free iPad App makes CK-12's content available for all different learning styles.
“For K-12 Teachers and Students”
This app can help students in multiple ways: from researching relevant content for homework
to learning concepts in different ways (according to their learning preference) to preparing for quizzes/exams by practicing questions. Parents/Teachers can use this app to help facilitate and enhance student engagement in class.
“Access on the go - free digital textbooks and concepts”
The studyNow! iPad app was handcrafted to provide the most engaging experience for our iPad users by shining a spotlight on the library of CK-12 concepts and FlexBooks. Students and teachers can now readily access any concept and/or digital textbook via the app while on the go. Now, students and teachers are not bound by the classroom walls! Learning is anywhere, anytime, and free!
The studyNow! iPad app allows students and teachers to download and store FlexBooks and concepts for later access when there is no internet connection. Allowing for offline access ensures you always have your content at your fingertips at anytime- whether or not you have the Internet! (barring no dead batteries on your iPad, that is).
“Practice on the go”
Practicing right after you read or watch something is sometimes the best way to remember what you’ve learned. So our free educational iPad app also allows students to take practice questions for both math and science concepts on the go. With free exercises and quizzes embedded right alongside the content, now you don't have to wait till you get back home to practice what you just learned. Don't lose that learning moment!
Currently, our new free iPad app for K-12 is available in English (stay tuned for other languages). We at CK-12 will continue to stay busy working to bring you the best educational experience possible wherever you are! Happy learning!
