Science App Review


  1. Consider a problem that could be solved by an app.
    1. a problem could be not wanting to study science because you might not be interested in what’s going on or you don’t know methods to studying.
  2. Brain storm
    1. when I am studying try to create mnemonic devices in my head or find a video on YouTube explaining what we’re learning in class. but sometimes it’s hard to just read out your notes and trying to memorize all the information.
  3. Find an app
    1.  I realized my best option would be to find an app that was simple but very helpful rather than one that took too much time to program to your specific standards. I looked up online some good studying apps and I found an app called Flashcards+ and I gave it a try.
  4. Using the app
    1. using the app at first, I really liked it. it has a lot of useful tools to use and help you study. It eliminates the hassle of wasting time and paper hand writing usually 20+ flashcards on individual pieces of paper and going back and forth looking at your notes trying to copy the information down.
  5. Debrief 
    1. after I knew what kind of app I wanted I did some research on google and the App Store I found my app (Flashcards+) ad started using it. I didn’t get to use my technique of a mnemonic device to study but instead more or less memory techniques. I overall liked the app but wish it was a little more organized. I did appreciate that when you first get the app it has kind a how-to use the app mode.

Digital Footprint- Myra Qualitz

Myra Qualitz

How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities?

            If you’re posting inappropriate things now, then in the future when you’re applying for jobs and your possible employer searches your name they will be disappointed and not want to hire you. If your family members search your name and something inappropriate you said or did shows up it could have consciences.





Three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

  1. Keep your account on private and only let people you know follow you.

           2. Don’t put any personal information in your bio’s (ex. School, sports team that you play for, location, etc.).


  1. Use the “grandma rule”. The grandma rule is when you wouldn’t post things that you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed to show to your grandma.
