50 Fab Apps for Teachers |

50 Fab Apps for Teachers | | Reading |

"Education—there’s an app for that. In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the market designed for teaching and learning. As more schools bring tablets into the classroom, educators like Genia Connell are finding that apps are game changers.


“I have yet to see anything in education that generates excitement and motivates students the way tablets do,” says the third-grade teacher from Leonard Elementary School in Troy, Michigan. Connell points to e-reading apps like Storia that not only engage students but also level the playing field for struggling readers. “Differentiation has become easier with apps because so many of them have built-in levels of complexity.”


By many accounts, some of the most powerful education apps are used for teaching reading and supporting differentiation for students with disabilities. But their capabilities are endless. Developers have created easy-to-use programs that serve as learning platforms for students and as organization tools for teachers. Here are 50 fabulous apps that are helping to change the face of education."

Survey: E-book Popularity Soaring, But Kids Still Love Printed Books

Survey: E-book Popularity Soaring, But Kids Still Love Printed Books | Reading |

"Children are embracing e-books by the millions, but most say they still would choose the printed version, according to a survey released today. Scholastic's biannual survey of children from 6-17 years old found e-books soaring in popularity: 46 percent of the 1,074 children surveyed said they had read an e-book, compared with 25 percent who said they had in 2010... Half of the children said they'd read more books for fun if they had better access to e-books. And it's clear that children are doing the lion's share of e-book reading at home, rather than in school: Three quarters of the children who have read an e-book have done so at home; only one-quarter said they had read an e-book in school."
