Audience: Educators at any level and Support Staff
I created the first '10 must have apps in the classroom' course out of a desire to provide teachers with some foundation apps to build confidence using apps and technology in their classroom.
This course is the 'another' 10 must have apps in the classroom.
The latest research tells us that teachers are more likely to use technology when they feel confident in what they are doing. Teachers want to know what to do with apps and how they can integrate them into their daily lessons. Teachers want to know how to 'teach' using the apps; and how their students can use the apps to demonstrate their learning. The next ten apps course will give you 10 apps to add to your technology ' armour'. You don't have to do the previous 10 apps course to do this one.
