Nice list of apps.  We've used most of these, but there are a few that are new to me that I would like to try.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, July 16, 2013 7:32 PM

These apps would also apply to other year levels.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, March 20, 2014 8:52 PM

There are some good tips here. It somewhat depends on the platform you use, but one I would add is: watch out for elements that don't transfer. You may be using a nifty "word art" feature and find that the viewers are looking at a big, black box.

Illustrative Chart on Project Based Learning Vs Problem Based Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Illustrative Chart on Project Based Learning Vs Problem Based Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Project based learning and problem based learning are two didactic approaches to learning that are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: engaging students in authentic learning activities. This truism does not always hold true. In a learning task that is problem based, the focus is on finding solutions to the problem posed through applying learned strategies and in so doing the process of arriving at the solution is, in and of itself, an integral part of the overall learning taking place . Whether a learning activity is authentic or not does not really matter from a problem based learning perspective because often times 'fictitious scenarios' are purposefully designed to provide learners with a contrived environment to work on their ill-structured problems.
Josh Simmons's insight:
I love project based learning. It is a great way for students to truly understand the subject matter.
