The Appy Queen

The Appy Queen | Apps & Web Tools | Scoop.it

These curated sites pertain to educational apps and online tools that aid in productivity and the success of teaching and learning.

 

-Julie Phelps, Instructional Designer & Appy Queen

Julie Phelps's insight:

Use the filter in the upper right-hand corner of the Scoop It page to see apps and web tools as they are tagged by category. If it is an app only or a web tool only they will be tagged with one or the other. Some are both. They are also organized by functionality such as productivity and are tagged as free, paid features, or low price (.99 - 2.99). Most apps are for iOS, but will soon be tagged by platform as well.

FlipSnack | PDF to Flash page flip - flipping book software | Apps & Web Tools | Scoop.it
Julie Phelps's insight:

This is an awesome tool. It couldn't be easier to turn PDF's and jpegs into a digital book format. I can't believe this is free! I stumbled on it while looking for syllabus makeover ideas. If a syllabus was written in a Publisher or Word newsletter template and saved as a PDF, then it could be put in Flipsnack.  Since this syllabus would  be different, and visually appealing, students may actually read it.  See examples here: http://www.flipsnack.com/A9C8DBBA9F7/112fall14.html
