Some of these applications are useful for maths classes (Math Duel, Fraction Plus, MyScript Calculator, MathAlly Graphing Calculator) and some for astronomy (Google Sky Map, Solar System). Tatjana will also present tools that help to make books “interactive” (Aurasma) and applications for knowledge quick view and/or assessment (Plickers and some other quizzes apps).
