Favorite Apps

There are tons of apps available for students to use.  Although I want learning to be fun for my students and I value the educational value of gaming apps, I'm more excited about apps that can engage students in critical thinking, collaboration, and the presentation of skills learned.  When students are encouraged to go beyond gaming and begin creating, their imaginations and creativity will soar.

Below is a list of some of my favorite apps to use in the classroom.  I'm confident this list will evolve as we find new apps, improved apps, and new uses for apps. Feel free to comment or send me an email if you find a noteworthy app that should be added to the list.  As educators the "art of teaching" lies in collaborating with other educators.
