I liked what I read until I got to the part where it connects from the web, directly to your data. How secure is that?

Apps to Grow With (App-tivities Across the Curriculum) - TechChef4u aka Lisa Johnson

Apps to Grow With (App-tivities Across the Curriculum) - TechChef4u aka Lisa Johnson | McColl's Treasures | Scoop.it

"Apps to Grow With (App-tivities Across the Curriculum):

 

Discover how to use a handful of apps across the curriculum. This presentation includes a thorough tour of student-created work and app-tivities using 3 apps (e.g. Pic Collage, Strip Designer/Comic Life, and Scrap Pad). As these apps are product-based in nature, they are coined as “apps to grow with” – apps that can be used PreK-12 and beyond and stretched across the curriculum. This session will also touch on workflow, professional development, and student showcases."

ESRI is moving towards creating a dynamic, authorative, living digital atlas and empowering users to create their own.  See this great political map of 2008 U.S. presidential election that is a part of the altas; it goes far beyond simple blue and red states.  StoryMaps are also democratizing the mapping process.  Explore these excellent examples of storymaps (Endangered Languages and top 10 physical landforms).
