I have to say “Surprisingly Educational” apps appears to be the most popular topic on our “appy hours 4 u” show to date. In these shows we feature mostly free *(some apps may have been free for a limited time) edutainment apps and discuss integration ideas for each app that span across content areas and multiple grade levels.
To support this app-erific surprisingly educational phenomenon, I was inspired to create a Symbaloo web mix to house the apps from our previous and upcoming Surprisingly Educational Shows. This Symbaloo will also serve as a resource for an iPlayground workshop at TCEA 2012.
Symbaloo can be accessed off of a mobile device – each link will open in Safari or iTunes.
And while we are on the subject of “surprisingly educational apps”, I would like to thank the iOS geniuses behind To Me By Me (featured on Surprisingly Educational Apps: Part 2) for such an innovative app…and for giving “appy hours 4 u” some iTunes love! Also check out out To Me By Me can be utilized with children and students for goal-setting!
Stay tuned for a fully interactive “Hot Apps 4 HOTS” ePub educator workshop which will feature free edu apps from our episodes… including surprisingly educational and appear in iBooks early this Spring!
