What is School? “Apps”

#whatisschool is back again and I am thrilled to welcome back a colleague of mine in Singapore, Adam Torrens to co-host this week’s chat with me. We will be talking about Apps and the application of these to add value to student learning.

With thousands of educational apps flooding the App Store, it is becoming increasingly important that schools take a closer look at which apps students should use and for what purposes. Should students only use creative based apps to show their learning? or can students gain knowledge from consumer based applications for particular subjects? This week’s #whatisschool chat discusses which apps various teachers value for classroom learning.
