I just completed one of my “Apps for FACS” presentations at the Illinois Family and Consumer Sciences Teachers Conference in O’Fallon Illinois. It was a great show. On Monday I exhibited some of the newest Learning ZoneExpress materials - always my favorite to show what is new and must-have in the classroom - see more: http://www.learningzonexpress.com
On Tuesday morning I did my breakout session. Some of the popular apps discussed in this presentation:
Actually an iPhone app - this FREE app allows users to scan bar codes on food and the app provides the food a grade just like one would receive in school. Unhealthy foods get low grades like D’s and healthy foods get A’s. It also provides reasoning behind the grades given and uses nutrition facts labels!
Free app loaded with all things Eggs - recipes, timers, nutrition information, tips for storage and safety and short easy to follow videos!
Free app to help you add reading to your curriculum and life. Easy and fun to navigate- provides up to the minute online articles based on your interests (such as nutrition, parenting, design, etc.)
CDC Solve the Outbreak:
Free educational game app - users must follow clues given to solve mysteries about large real cases of food born illnesses.
