"Well, here it is my favorite and most popular post of the year, my Top 100 Sites/Apps of the year!!! Continuing w/ the trend from last year, readers are going to find more and more apps on the list and less sites, as the flux in mobile learning and BYOD (bring your own devices) continues to rise. Also, you'll notice that there are a lot of learning tools for Digital Storytelling & Math. I believe the reason for this is because storytelling is a learning tool that can be used by a wide range of educators for any subject, and Math is a very popular subject w/ lots of diverse ways to go about teaching it. W/ that I hope you enjoy this list and as always thanks again for reading!!!"
