How to introduce digital technology and ignite your students love of learning - Teach with Technology

How to introduce digital technology and ignite your students love of learning - Teach with Technology | Library ED TECH | Scoop.it

As a result of this review, I downloaded the app onto my iPad to see just how easy it was to use and I was pleasantly surprised. The app is very user friendly with a range of options to choose from and would be great to use with students. My only reserve with the app is the limited options available so its important to check that the avatars and backgrounds are suitable for the topic that the students will be relating it to.
