App helps hygienists study on the go
The two dental hygienists who created a dental hygiene board game to aid exam studies have now designed an app with the same aim.
US dental hygienists, Karen Isbister and Carrie Clotworthy, created Pass It! last year which incorporates more than 1,000 important dental hygiene questions in a fun board game.
The aim is to prepare any dental hygiene student for exams without the boredom, study fatigue or information overload usually associated with the intense exam studying.
Now the creative duo have released an app version of the game available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
They say: ‘Have you ever been in line at the grocery store, waiting at the airport, or waiting for class to start and wished you could take those few extra minutes to study? Now you can. No more bringing text books, flashcards, or notes with you to study on-the-go.
‘Just like the board game, the app allows students to break away from multiple choice format and really challenge themselves by answering fill-in-the-blank questions along with true/false and 50/50.’
Students aren’t the only ones who can benefit from this app.
Karen says the pair have had fellow registered dental hygienists who have tried out the app to see just how much they know now and, she says, ‘you’d be surprised how much information is left behind’.
Each of the 11 subjects included in the board game are available for individual purchase for $1.99 per subject.
