I just came across this and it seems like a really good idea. This article in Edublogs suggests using an app to help you remember your student’s names. What a cool idea! They suggest NameShark to remember the names in your group and pronouncenames.com if you want to remember pronunciations. I think this would work well with any group or organization. I plan to give it a try the next time I need to memorize a group of new people. Disclaimer: it does require passing your phone around to the students so it would have to be done with help or at an appropriate age.
