Based on afew that I have seen online, I wanted to share a few of the best. As with everything related to technology, this information will be in a constant sea of change, but hopefully, some of these resources will be helpful.
WHAT APP SHOULD I USE? IS THERE AN APP FOR MY SUBJECT AREA?
How many times have you heard this question? It’s not about the app, it’s about the teaching and student learning goals. Don’t look at apps to be specific to your subject area. Look at apps to support your student goals. EdTechTeacher has a wonderful page on their site called, “iPad As….” Check this out to see what apps to use for specific student learning goals that support critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. http://edtechteacher.org/index.php/teaching-technology/mobile-technology-apps/ipad-as.
Looking at web-based tools, Katie Ritter has a nice chart, http://talktechwithme.wordpress.com/2012/10/17/blooms-revised-technology-taxonomy/ and even now, I could add some additional sites to her list.
Kathy Schrock also has an informative site with her recommended apps, http://www.schrockguide.net/bloomin-apps.html
With over a million sites and apps to choose from, the opportunities for student growth are endless!
