AASL Best Apps and Best Websites
On Saturday, AASL committee members announced the 2017 Best Websites and 2017 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning at ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.
In case you missed those big reveals, no worries! Actually, worry–big time. You are in for a serious summer rabbit hole adventure.
Now in its ninth year, The 2017 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning list presents 25 websites that provide enhanced learning and curriculum development for school librarians and their teacher partners.
Visit the official 2017 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning list for full descriptions of the Committee’s picks. The Committee honors websites, tools, and resources of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning as embodied in AASL Standards.
For 2017, the Best Websites Committee selected 25 websites in the categories of:
- Media Sharing
- Digital Storytelling
- Manage & Organize
- Social Networking & Communication
- Content Resources
- Curriculum Collaboratio
On the apps side, I was once again honored to be a member of the Best Apps team, a project now in its fifth year.
Note that the Committee had a little trouble with the notion of categories this time around. Off the Beaten Apps, for instance, recognized the power of immersive 360 degree virtual reality experiences.
I pulled together an interactive Piktochart Infographic of the 2017 AASL Best Apps.
Hope you devote just a little time this summer to exploring these exceptional resources.
