Apps/other materials for grad school?


Recommended Posts

Just a random question! For those of you in grad school, what apps and materials do you recommend a soon-to-be grad student obtain?

As far as clinic, I would wait and see what type of clients you receive before downloading any apps or buying any materials unless you come across free/inexpensive things that you know could be good for anybody. For classes, same advice. Basically just get the essentials that you know you will need, like binders, paper, spirals, pens/pencils, dividers, laptop, printer, ink cartridges, etc. I definitely recommend a good recorder that has the ability to upload the recordings to your computer (wish I would've done this my first semester!) and also an awesome planner because that will be your lifesaver when you're trying to manage your time and stay organized.

 

I wouldn't get too hung up on the idea that you need to go out and buy a bunch of stuff prior to starting (besides getting the basic essentials), because I did the same thing last year and got a ton of stuff that I still haven't used. Also, your school may even provide some things for you. For instance ours has free laminating, black & white printing, and basic office supplies on top of a giant materials closet for clinic. Hope this helps!

Does anyone know of any books to review the summer before grad school that might be helpful going into grad school? I'm thinking of going through all of my notes, but if there is a book that has everything combined that might be more helpful!!

If you have an iPad or iPhone I'll give a little shameless plug for a free app my company just released. It's called Speech Racer Lite and it's a speech-recognition app that grades 'R' pronunciation! The pro version will come out in August with lots of flashcards, etc, but even the free version is super fun to play with. Here's a link if you want to read more: http://www.completespeech.com/speechracer/

 

We also have an app called VowelViz that provides speech recognition/biofeedback and helps kids with vocalic R and vowel sounds. There's not a free version but you can check out lots of videos on youtube before buying.
