AASL's Best Apps for Teaching and Learning

I recently returned from the American Library Association's Annual Conference in San Francisco. While I was at ALA, I had the pleasure of revealing the 2015 Best Apps for Teaching and Learning along with six other members of the committee.

The ASSL Best Apps committee was founded in 2012 by Melissa Jacobs and the American Association of School Librarians in an effort to help librarians, teachers, tech integrators, and parents find the best apps to use with children in educational settings.

The committee selected 25 apps in five categories: Books, Content Creation, STEM, Organization & Management, and Social Sciences.

Best Apps Committee Members: John Schumacher, Melissa Jacobs (chair), Lisa Castellano, Mary Ann Scheuer, Kathleen Roberts, Joyce Valenza and Cathy Potter (me).
After revealing this year's list, this poster was on display at the Lonely Planet booth in the exhibit hall.

Here's a Storify archive of Tweets from the AASL Best Apps presentation at the American Library Association Annual Conference in San Francisco.
