Returning for a second year, this popular session is a high energy and interactive presentation introducing a wide range of apps and online activities perfect for the classroom. All new apps! The session will provide an overview of each app or online activity, show the basics of how to use it, and suggest ways to integrate it into numerous classroom activities and subject areas. The goal of the session is one of breadth– not depth. This presentation will send attendees away with a list of at least 20 apps and online activities they can use immediately since they will see them in action.
