Webinar presented on 2016-04-14.
There are many educational apps to help build students as creators and streamline instruction and learning, but where should you start? Join three innovative school librarians for this hands-on webinar that will introduce three of the content creation apps from AASL’s 2015 Best Apps for Teaching and Learning. These instructional technology leaders will share tips for integration, use, and mastery of these top tools to “foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration” in the learning environment. As a bonus, participate in an online discussion of these apps and brainstorm to help you start using the apps with your students the very next day! Librarians Dawn Rankin from Wapakoneta City Schools, Missy Rivera from Anna Middle and High School, and AASL Top Apps Committee member Susan Mongold from Woodridge Local Schools will demonstrate best practices for and lead discussions on Adobe Voice, Pixel Press Floors, and Glogster.

Please note that since this webinar was presented, Adobe Voice has been renamed Adobe Spark.

A 30-year veteran in education, Dawn embraces change, challenge, and choice. She has served in various roles: elementary teacher, middle school teacher, gifted specialist, instructional coach, and librarian. One of her greatest accomplishments was creating a MakerSpace in the Wapakoneta Middle School library. Students love flexing their creative and critical thinking muscles while using the LEGO wall, green screen, building supplies, and other STEAM-related materials.
