I often remind people that it’s not “all about the app,” but about the learning we want to encourage. We can keep a set of standard apps in our toolkit, but if we really need an app, we can certainly go “searching” for one. It’s important to keep focused on the real purpose.
That being said, there are some very helpful(and some creative) apps that streamline work for librarians, help support student research, and are useful for instruction, so our middle school librarian, Heather Schubert, and I gathered some of those resources for our presentation at TCEA 2013. Check it out below, and share apps you’ve found helpful in your library!
