As some of you might know, Megan and I have been in one -to- one classrooms for the last 6 years. What that means is that we have iPads in our classroom for every student. Now, since the pandemic this has become a much more common practice. One big concept that we stress to our students is that technology is just not for games, because for many of our younger students that is all they know technology/tablets to be used for. We teach them that technology is a tool that allows us to learn so much about our world and allows us to create what was once not possible. Technology is a powerful learning tool when used the correct way.
Throughout our years of experience with being one-to-one classrooms, we have come across many different apps and resources; some great, some not so great. In light of so many of us using technology to teach our students now, we thought we’d share with you some of our favorite learning apps for our students! We have so many apps/resources that we love. We like to categorize them in different ways. We have our “creative/creation” apps, learning apps, and teacher resources/planning apps. We have recently posted a blog about our favorite creation apps for students, linked below. Now it is time to share with you a few of our favorite student learning apps!
