Use an App to Help Remember Your Students

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 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.
