Welcome! Teacher Recommended: 50 Favorite Classroom Apps. Educators and students are quickly becoming more comfortable with classroom technology, allowing them to shift from thinking about the technical side of integrating a new tool to focusing on how it improves learning. While the sheer number of education apps is still overwhelming, increasingly teachers have found what works for them and are sticking to them.
“The conversations I had were radically different than they were a year ago,” said Michelle Luhtala, the librarian for New Canaan High School and host of an Emerging Tech webinar on edWeb. She tapped her professional learning network of educators, teaching all grades and located all over the country, to share their favorite tech tools. “A year ago people felt like it was this new thing that was so overwhelming,” Luhtala said, “and now it really seems much more comfortable.”
Educators have become proficient with their favorite classroom apps and are getting more creative with using them to achieve teaching goals. Epic! Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Interactive Visual Featuring 6 Tasks You Can Easily Do Using iPad. June , 2014 This is an interactive image (created using Thinglink) that features a bunch of useful iPad apps that you can use to do tasks that you would traditionally do using a pen and paper.
I really liked the idea of providing alternatives to do things digitally. For instance, instead of taking notes in a notebook or on paper you can use Evernote or any other note taking app to do it on iPad. The good thing about doing things digitally is that you have the added advantage of accessing, editing, and sharing your work across different devices and platforms and also saving it on the cloud to access it anytime anywhere anywhere you go.
As is the case with the all the interactive Thinglink images I shared here in the past, the app icons shared here are hyperlinked, just hover your mouse over any of them to access it on the iTunes app store.
