APPS in the Classroom
Teaching in the 21st Century now requires educators to embrace technology. Smartphones, ipads, and tablets are expanding the learning experience like never before for teachers and students. In this course, participants will research hundreds of educational apps appropriate to his/her grade level and content area. Participants will become familiar with apps for both students and teachers which can be used inside and outside of the classroom. Student centered apps will help to make learning more engaging and interactive while developing a deeper understanding of content. Teacher centered apps will help teachers develop innovative lessons, monitor progress, implement the common core standards, stay organized, grade, and much more! In addition, research will be conducted on apps specifically designed for ELL and special education students. As a result of this class, participants will gather resources and information necessary to effectively utilize apps as a beneficial learning tool.
