The Motuto app for iPads and iPhones is the ultimate example of technology replacing human interaction. It is a virtual mobile homework assistant service and the only real-time mobile tutoring app of its kind. The Motuto app is revolutionizing the way that kids learn by continuing the movement away from the classroom and onto the screen.

The app gives you live access to expert tutors that will address unique homework questions. The student and tutors are matched by grade level and subject matter. Options to text chat with the tutor, draw charts and a share a two-way interactive white board are all features of the app that make it potentially as effective, if not more, as a real-life tutor.

Each session is 20 minutes with a tutor who is trained to help students solve problems and not just give them answers. The sessions can be stored on the device for future referencing and can be emailed to the student for printing and sharing
Each new user gets one free 20 minute session, after which point each session will cost around 5 bucks a pop.

In a world where kids live on their computers and pens and chalkboards are nothing short of archaic, the Motuto app and other such innovations are the future of digital learning!
