My technology integration specialist asked me to provide a list of creative apps that we have used in our classroom. All the apps are in our tool box, have been used, or will be used. I have included some of the many videos that show students actually using the apps. I have also included the original post if you would like to read the details surrounding the use of the app.
Important! These apps are worth the prices because they are able to be used across the curriculum!
