Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools

Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

When students enter high school, educational technology is no longer mainly for drilling or practice or simply keeping students engaged. Now tech provides the day-planner, the reference library, and the easily carried note-taking method that can help high school students succeed."
