This book offers both a theoretical framework for considering app affordances and practical ways to use apps to build students’ disciplinary literacies and to foster a wide range of literacy practices. It:

  •     presents a wide range of different apps and also assesses their value
  •     features methods for and apps related to planning instruction and assessing student learning
  •     identifies favorite apps whose affordances are most likely to foster certain disciplinary literacies
  •     includes resources and apps for professional development
  •     provides examples of student learning in the classroom

 

This book was selected by CHOICE Magazine as a "highly recommended" CHOICE book for 2015: 

"Because most of the other books in this field are solely print based, a website (www.usingipads.pbworks.com) and a link to each of the 12 chapters' blogs both enhance the knowledge and skills of the classroom teacher for professional development and provide resources for their classroom planning… Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers." - D. Pellegrino, University of Scranton, in CHOICE, May 2015
