Description

In the 21st century classroom, the power of mobility has begun to play a significant role in the learning experiences of students. The digital devices students use so frequently and unconsciously can be harnessed as powerful tools for learning, creativity, and discovery. As part of the 21st Century Fluency series, a reverse co-publishing arrangement between Corwin and the 21st Century Fluency Project, this high school book shows how both teachers and students can get the most out of these technologies to cultivate 21st Century Fluencies while addressing curricular objectives in a creative, engaging, relevant, real-world environment. The text identifies 40 of the most effective apps for the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone for K-12 classrooms; shows how to use them for learning, teaching, and productivity; and provides examples of classroom use.

Review quote

"This is a very important resource for teachers. The authors offer many creative uses for these apps, the ideas are easy to implement and are sure to increase student engagement and excitement about learning. An outstanding asset for the teacher who wants to build a foundational toolkit that will support 21st Century learning." -- Sara J. Stewart, Instructional Technology Project Facilitator "The authors encourage educators to think outside of personal comfort zones to capitalize on young learners' inquisitiveness." -- Judith A. Rogers, Mathematics Specialist "The chapters provide comprehensive information on each app including the subject areas, cost (if any), developer address, background information, and how to use the specific app. This is an important contribution to the myriad resources available for teachers who like to use technology in their classroom." -- Karen Chenoweth, Assistant Principal "The authors clearly describe the apps and highlight connections between classroom instruction and student learning." -- Sally Bennett, Curriculum Coordinator "With the push for a technology-centered classroom, it is useful to have a book such as this one to help teachers navigate through the applications available to determine their usefulness in the classroom." -- Melody L. Aldrich, Teacher
