38 Of The Best Elementary Learning Apps For Students - TeachThought

38 Of The Best Elementary Learning Apps For Students - TeachThought | etextbooks | Scoop.it

"Looks like this mobile learning thing might actually take off, eh?

 

Just as we recently looked specifically at math apps for elementary school students, now we give some love to elementary students (and teachers) who have tablets and want to separate the digital wheat from the digital chaff.

 

The following listly collection from sometimes-TeachThought contributor Sam Gliksman is an excellent starting point for elementary teachers looking for elementary apps for elementary students in the most elementary way possible: a collection of 38 possibilities, all embedded in your favorite blog whose name is a compound word.

 

As usual, Gliksman’s experience with iPads in education yields a wonderfully diverse collection of apps, from games to digital media software to math and literacy apps."

"So the next stage was to stop exploring too much, and sit down and rationalise things. I spent time thinking about the functions I wanted my students to be able to undertake using the iPads, and created a list: Mind-mapping, AfL, writing and recording, researching, demonstrating learning, sharing learning, creating posters, word clouds, videos, demonstrations, podcasts, revision, online accessible storage.

 

Here are the tools I used, for those of you with an unhealthy interest:"
