August Apps

AugustApps200As we recently reported, poor implementation of technology in schools can be costly. Laptops permanently broken, iPads stored for long periods of time without being used, and technology being used as a means of reward rather than proper use…we could continue.

One problem with poor implementation is that teachers do not have the support, confidence or adequate training in how to use the technology. Whilst many teachers are currently on their summer break (in the northern hemisphere) and thinking about returning to work, we are going to look at apps which can have a real impact for learning.

Each day in August (2014), we will highlight an app or computer programme that can support the teaching and learning process in a variety of subject areas, for a variety of learning stages. Some apps are already listed on our EduApps pages (for iPad or Android), whereas others will be new additions which we have come across recently.

We will update this page also daily, to alert you of the review which has been completed:
