Top 100 Apps for Teachers, Students and Researchers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Top 100 Apps for Teachers, Students and Researchers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach


"Today while I was doing some research into qualitative research methods I stumbled upon this excellent list of apps curated by TQR ( The Qualitative Research ) which is a peer reviewed, weekly open access journal published by Nova Southeastern University. I have spent some time going through all the titles mentioned in this list and I was really amazed to discover some great new apps I did not know about before....

"And although this list is curated by people interested in scientific and academic research, the apps cover a wide variety of skills including writing, presentation making, mind mapping, referencing, and many more. In fact, I could not offer you any better than this great list for back to school. Make sure to go through it yourself before you share with your students. Enjoy

"Here is a snapshot of part of this list, click HERE to access the entire original list."

"It is a myth that all it takes to write is to sit down in front of a blank page, to begin at the beginning and write through to the end, with no planning, break, editing, or changes in between. And yet, this is sometimes what we ask our students to do. Good writers plan and revise, rearrange and delete text, re-reading and producing multiple drafts before they produce their finished document. This is what a process writing approach is about."

Jim Lerman's insight:

Good overview and refresher.
