For the July 2014 showcase, Vandy Advandi discussed the topic of apps and web tools for effective teaching. Students respond well to lessons on smart board, iPads and laptops. Does that mean all apps and web tools qualify as “educational” tools? Certainly not! While most apps are animated worksheets, there are some valuable programs that serve as meaningful platform to display knowledge learning. Vandy showcased some cool apps and tools she knew and gave the opportunity for others to share with the rest of the crowd.
