Crammer users go online to create digital flash cards that are downloaded to the device. It can access over 16,000 quiz questions and going online provides access to thousands more math, science, social studies, and language arts quizzes. There’s also Spanish translator which will help with vocabulary development and pronunciation.

BrainPop ($7.95/month and up)– Let’s face it, not everyone learns best through the traditional methods of books, paper, and pencil. Subscription service BrainPop provides animated, curriculum based content that engages the teen set through short clips where characters Tim and Moby illustrate the laws of probability, discuss complexities of the human body, and features biographies of famous historical figures like Anne Frank, Charles Darwin, and Jackie Robinson. I love that the site plays easily on both Macs and PCs and does not require additional plug-ins. While you can access many of the BrainPop clips for free, the subscription site features tons more content, including content in Spanish. Visit the site for a free trial.
