Chalkboards, hard back books and late nights researching at a desk are become more rare as technology takes over the the classroom and beyond. There are tools to help parents and students prepare for school during and after the school day is over. Scott Caul with Verizon Wireless has three apps that's making the way we learn a completely new experience. Mathemagics is an app providing students  with step-by-step directions for math problems. Caul said it provides mental tricks to try and make the app feel like a game. It's available on iOS for $.99.

iTunes U is geared for teachers to use to write up lesson plans, upload lectures and assign homework. Students can access on-the-go through their laptops, smartphones or tablets, he said. "Students can use this app to download their textbooks electronically." This is a free app available on iOS

LearnEnglish Grammar is for all grade levels built to improve student's grammar. It's set up to feel like a game with quizzes and activities and incorporates text, images and video, Caul said. It's available for free on iOS and in the Google Play Market.

Verizon Wireless is located at Woodland Hills Mall at 10031 E 71st Street in Tulsa. Visit www.verizonwireless.com for more information.
