WHPS APP of the week...


APP Talk

This is a new section for our newsletter to help parents and students select good educational apps or web sites that we use at school or we think may be useful for you at home. The apps will be for iPads because that is what we use at school.

Noteability is the iPad equivalent of Microsoft word. It is $6.49 which is about half the price of ‘pages’ -the Apple version of Word. We have bought this app for our school iPads and hope students will be using it soon.
