Welcome back to your #EdTech source for great websites, Apps, PD, Social media, and FREE resources. That is right, as a subscriber to our newsletter, we want you to enjoy some cool free stuff! Last month, we featured Symbaloo and after a quick Tweet, Symbaloo responded! They decided to give YOU access to a free #BacktoSchool package full of #EdTech freebies for you and your students.
The banner above isn't linked, but if you are interested and want more details and the promo code to get these freebies, scroll down to the bottom of the newsletter!
Just a Reminder, and for our NEW subscribers: For the person who interacts the most with the first 4 newsletters this month (opens, clicks, forwards, comments), we will send you a FREE paperback copy of our newest book A is for Action: The ABC’s of Taking Action! To preview the first 9 pages of this book, click HERE and press “Download Sample”. We will announce the winner in our 5th newsletter, which should come your way on September 30th.
TECH Month continues....with APPS!
It's difficult for us to recommend the best Apps for everyone, as you all have different needs, so we thought we would share a few APP "hubs" where you can find some great lists. Explore APPitic, or use the quicklinks below to go straight to what you want:
Apps by Subject area
Apps for Preschool
Apps for Special Needs
Apps for CBL (Challenge-based Learning)
Apps for the Flipped Classroom
Apps for Bloom's Taxonomy
Apps for Multiple Intelligences
Apps for Physical Education
APPlist Builder tool: If you want to create your own personalized APP lists to share with parents, fellow educators, friends, family, or use with your students for specific subjects, skills or for homework, check out this new tool. If you end up making a cool list that you would like to share, please shoot it our way!
AppsGoneFree: Download this free app, and check it daily for a small list of Apps that typically sell for $1.99, $2.99, $4.99 or more, but get them FREE!
iPads for Education: Offers great APPS, organized by Category.
APPList: This tool allows you to share a list of all your iPhone- and iPad-Applications with your friends, your colleagues and your family. Nothing more, nothing less. Here is Jeff's List from a few months ago. Please don't judge ;)
ARTICLE: Why the “Explain Everything” APP is a must-have.
