HBA has jumped on the modern technology bandwagon by giving its students their long awaited iPads.
Being able to subtract a few pounds from the textbook load is definitely a plus, but there’s one more benefit other than the improvement to a student’s spinal health: the myHomework Student Planner.
This app is open for free download in the App Store and has a wide variety of organizational tools to help sift through day-to-day homework loads. It’s an advanced alternative to the laminated student planner given out every year, although this application doesn’t come with a nifty ruler/bookmark.

All in all this app is a very helpful alternative to writing things down and/or scrambling around through notebook pages and cluttered class notes. It’s a way to get things done without rushing to stuff another layer into a bursting backpack.
