Revising isn’t easy. So, how can we help our students in their studies? Revision apps can help students with organisation, investigation and memory. Here are 10 examples of useful revision apps our students could try.
- All about organisation: from reminders to checklists – this app has it covered.
- Image to Text is a great feature that allows you to grab text from photos. Students can take photos of their notes and revise from them.
- A study and flashcard app, Quizlet let’s you create quizzes with your own information.
- There are also 400 million quizzes already available across a wide range of subject areas.
- The easiest and quickest way to collaborate. Students can create a shared space where everyone can share ideas, links, images and tips.
- The link can be shared with everyone in a class, allowing everyone to add in their information, save as a pdf and send to everyone.
4. Popplet Lite
- A beautifully simple way to create mind-maps.
5. Spark Post

7. Explain Everything
- Import a photo, video or popplet, then add your voice explaining what you want to remember: blurt out all the vocabulary, processes and dates you need.
8. Texting Story
