RTI is the app that will help you keep track of your students. The RTI tools are easily added to fit your school’s needs. Have you ever started an intervention program for a student then forgot to re-evaluate that student? Happens more often than we would like to admit. The RTI app has nice features that will provide a reminder when it is time to check on your students. All student notes can easily be emailed to your team, parents, and other key stakeholders.
You Can Handle Them All is a must-have for school counselors. This is a great reference app that allows you to look up challenging behaviors and find interventions to use with a student to modify those behaviors. This is a great resource to help teachers and parents find new strategies to deal with challenging students. It works on the iPhone as well as the iPad, so it truly is an on-the-go resource!
Apps for Organizing, Note taking, Brainstorming
Feel Electric is a fun app for younger students to learn all about feelings. It allows for tracking feelings, teaching feelings vocabulary, and playing feelings games. This is a great app for working with individual students or small groups of younger students and practicing identifying feelings.
Cyber bullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. As it has become more common in society, particularly among young people, legislation and awareness campaigns have arisen to combat it.

• “As students prepare for back to school, don't forget the anxiety...Middle School Confidential can help with that.”—iPhone Life
“Be Confident in Who You Are” is a digital comic book with fantastic graphics. It covers such topics as bullying, friendship and body image.

An easy guide to the things our brain needs to function properly, like water, sleep, nutrition, and personal boundaries.

School Counseling Blogs
SnapChat: This App allows users to send photos that will disappear after 10 seconds. Once the recipient opens the picture, the timer starts. Then it’s gone. From both the sender's phone and the recipient’s phone. However, the recipient can take a screen shot of the photo and have it to share with others. This App enables kids to feel more comfortable “sexting” with peers.
Yik Yak-This App is one of the newest and one of the most dangerous. It allows users to post text-only Yaks of up to 200 characters. The messages can be viewed by the 500 Yakkers who are closest to the person who wrote the Yak, as determined by GPS tracking. Users are exposed to – and contributing -sexually explicit content, abusive language and personal attacks so severe that schools are starting to block the App on their Wi-Fi. Although the posts are anonymous, kids start revealing personal information as they get more comfortable with other users
KiK-This is a private messenger app and is coveted by those under 18 for a number of reasons. The App allows kids to send private messages that their parents can’t see. There is very little you can do to verify the identity of someone on Kik, which obviously poses the risk of sexual predators chatting with your child. And again, this is an easy tool for sexting.
Poof- The Poof App allows users to make Apps disappear on their phone with one touch. Kids can hide every app they don’t want you to see on their phone. All they have to do is open the App and select the ones they don’t want you to see. Very scary! The good news about this App is it is no longer available, which isn't uncommon for these types of Apps. But, if it was downloaded before it was deleted from the App store, your child may still have it. Keep in mind that Apps like this are created and then terminated pretty quickly by Android and Apple stores, but there are similar ones being created constantly. Some other names include: Hidden Apps, App Lock and Hide It Pro
Omegle- This App has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009. When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”. You don't have to register for the App. However, you can connect Omegle to your Facebook account to find chat partners with similar interests. When choosing this feature, an Omegle Facebook App will receive your Facebook “likes” and try to match you with a stranger with similar likes. This is not okay for children. There is a high risk of sexual predators and you don’t want your kids giving out their personal information, much less even talking to strangers.
Whisper-This is a meeting App that encourages users to post secrets. You post anonymously, but it displays the area you are posting from. You can search for users posting within a mile from you. A quick look at the App and you can see that online relationships are forming constantly on this App, but you never know the person behind the computer or phone. One man in Washington was convicted of raping a 12-year-old girl he met on this App just last year
Down-This application, which used to be called “Bang with Friends,” is connected to Facebook. Users can categorize their Facebook friends in one of two ways: they can indicate whether or not a friend is someone they'd like to hang with or someone they are "down" to hook up with. The slogan for the App: “The anonymous, simple, fun way to find friends who are down for the night.” If that alone doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will!
