What will some of those apps include?
That's the theme of this post. What apps would you put on your second phone? Part of your digital portfolio is "WHAT DO YOU CARRY ON YOUR PHONE?"
www.TINYURL.com/fwpstart students can start building a free website. This is perhaps the single most useful tip in this list. I will repeat it. Tony Wagner of Harvard University has stated that the cheapest innovation that schools can introduce is to ask students to set up a website to display their accomplishments. What can you do with what you have learned? (That's the key question. Not, "What is your SAT score?" or "What is your GPA?")

The single most important thing you could do tomorrow for little to no money is have every student establish a digital portfolio where they collect their best work as evidence of their skills. Where they’re working with their teachers and other adults to present their best work, to iterate their best work, so that they actually have real progress they can show. -- TONY WAGNER
THE SECOND PHONE (just for APPS)
If you are interested in hearing my latest applications of apps and how they might assist your students. let me know. I have recently added a second telephone and I currently have over 50 apps on the memory card. The phone is used and works only in wifi and has no monthly charges
i particularly like the fast processing that is required with Math Workout and the vocabulary processing in Spread the Words SAT.
Math workout free
Spread the words, free (volume 2)
Spread the words, free (volume 1)
Students are encouraged to obtain a SECOND phone that will not have a monthly contract (no SIM card). The phone will have Photos.google.com app installed
Offline writing on Google Docs is possible with the Google Docs app
Google Drive is available in Wifi
Photos Google app
Students should record parts of the teacher's lectures that are important to the student. The student can also record his/her own performances of understanding and perhaps the reocrdings of teams (with their permission) because teens often learn more from another student.
Google Drive. Doesn't every phone come with Google Drive? Do people use it?
EverNote to keep notes
Translate Google app Download the dictionary so you can have access to the dictionary when you are away from WIFI
I currently have Arabic Spanish, Russian and Portuguese on this download. What's the next language?
Duo lingo app to improve another language
If you have an app that you think would be a good addition to this group of apps, let me know. I want to spread the idea of TWO PHONES, one for WIFI only and only for Apps.
Connectivity is important to encourage world citizenship and responsible digital connection. If you are connected, then you can respond.
If you want to be responsible and want to make a difference and have an impact, then get a second phone and connect with
Messenger is optional (I found the little message photo annoying)
Satellite app (keep looking up)
edX for online learning
CellWorld to review Biology
Yelp to leave reviews.

IN ADDITION to the APPS for a Second Phone, there is the idea for CHROMEBOOKS for the classroom.
What apps would make sense for a ChromeBook? These are extensions for the Chrome Book
Canva for designing posters (to create visual impact and to highlight an important idea from history, science, English class, a novel, a movie, or anything that the student wants to "hype" or draw attention to). Canva as a tool for expression and performances of understanding.
