How To Create An App Library

How To Create An App Library | Pinnacle Leaders | Scoop.it

"Apps and books are more similar than they might seem. They each diffuse content, provide access to expertise, and allow the cataloging and consolidation of knowledge into accessible forms for learners to study. And while there are important differences—apps can be constantly refreshed new information, while a book is what it is the moment it is published—there are some lessons to be learned with how we collect and categorize books."

Intetesting idea. UT-Brownsville just launced a 1-to-1 iPad pilot project. App Libraries may be a good way to distribute apps to all members of a program.

It is also a good section of a Library learning commons

A clever literacy station activity, that implements technology in the way of Ipads.  Very simple, suitable for younger and older students alike to practice their skills with a common found technology resources in classrooms today.

Kellee Dunn's comment, June 10, 2013 11:26 PM
Hi Sophie, I just viewed this resource and found it to be very clever. Activity stations are a popular and fun way to get students actively engaged in the task. This is a technologically creative way for students to showcase and explain their work instead of just drawing and writing in their notebooks.
