Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift | BYOD resources | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.

Library Staff's insight:

Content and skills can be balanced in teaching, as long as we don't sail along blissfully ignoring one in favour of the other. We do need to think beyond that which is "googleable" .

This is an excellent post from a strong teacher. Stephen Taylor seems to have an appropriate balance in his approach across many areas. Whilst at differing stages of our careers, the approach outlined is the closest to mine that I have come across.
