Kathie Lee & Hoda: Carley Knobloch Interview
For high-tech help for your students, Kathie Lee and Hoda were joined by Carley Knobloch, founder of DigitWirl.com, who shared gadgets, apps and websites to help your little Einstein excel in school, including ArtKive, Mathboard and Spellboard App reviews.
High-Tech Help: Elementary School
Carly suggested Artkive Free App from ArtkiveApp.com. She said your kids make art and it piles up everywhere and this app allows you to scan the art and it is digitally artkived.
Carly suggested Mathboard and Spellboard Apps for $4.99 from Pala Software. She said this is a really great app to let the kids brush up on their math skills and it starts with basic numbers up long division.
High-Tech Help: Middle & High School
Carly suggested Dialspeed Electronic Combination Lock for $24.99 from Masterlock. She said if you want your kid to have the coolest locker in school, get them this and instead of numbers it has an alpha-numeric panel to put in your own combination, like HODA.
Carly suggested Khan Academy App and Website Free from KhanAcademy.org. She said it is one thousand tutors in one website, so if the math homework gets beyond you, have your child go here.
Carly suggested Powerbag Ful Backpack for $139 from Powerbag. She said it has a battery in it and it will charge your smartphone four times, so your kids can have a full charge throughout the whole day.
High-Tech Help: College
Carly suggested CourseSmart for renting books. She brought in an Organic Chemistry book that is $270 to buy, but you can rent the same book for $92 and you have a digital copy that you can annotate it and highlight in.
Carly suggested putting your iPad on this clamp and you have this really great work station in a tiny area, which is great for college students. It is $80.
