Apps and Technology for Today's Educators

Whether you are no stranger to technology or are a newbie, I have created a small but great list of the
latest apps and websites educators can use to make life easier.

Common Core by Mastery Connect Inc.

We all know that Common Core Standards are a the forefront of our curriculum planning. So whether you are on the go or have the computer at your fingertips, this website and app is a quick resource to reference.  This free app is available on the iTunes App Store, on the Android Market, and on the Windows Store.

There are so many websites and new forms of technology out there how can we keep track of our favorite ones? Well creator Adam Fellows has kept it simple for us. With this free app, you can keep all of your favorite websites in one location.  This free app can be downloaded from Google Play and iTunes.
The Polka Dot Apple - Elementary School Educator/Blogger - Amy
Educator and blogger, Amy, has compiled a great list of Tech Tools for the elementary classroom.  A few  tools she mentions and highlights are: Livebinder, Symbaloo, and Kerpoof! Check out her blog for a description and personal reviews!
Want to spice things up a bit and bring more life to the literature in your classroom? This wonderful website has 23 books for the K-5 classrooms that "are designed to stimulate higher level thinking skills and to connect the story’s themes and messages to the issues of the real world in which students live."
In addition to these forms of technology, you can check additional ideas and resources on my pinterest board: Technology in the Classroom...
