Burn Note

App: Burn Note

Teachers beware! This app allows users to send self-destructing text messages. The function is intended for surprise parties or other fun secrets. I could also see students using it to cheat the system and avoid evidence of cheating. It is a great app, if used in the right context.

Classmate Communication

App: StudyBlue

Students can use this app to connect with other students within the same course. It can be used as a planner and collaboration tool for learning. Teachers and students can set up their classes and add current classes to their schedule. This would be a great resource for homework help and backchannel learning.
