Apps and Online Tools To Support Literacy....A Little Tool For Everyone!
Yesterday I had the honor of presenting to the Dallas County Reading Association, which is part of the Iowa Reading Association. They asked me to talk about apps and online tools that could be used within the library and throughout the school to support literacy. And not just literacy....but creativity, collaboration, and learning all around.
I created the presentation above in Google Sites and saved it as a PDF. I then uploaded it into SlideSnack. SlideSnack is one of my new favorite Web 2.0 tools. It allows you to upload your presentation as a PDF; share and embed your SlideSnack; and the coolest part....you can record and share a slidecast, which is voice recorded over the presentation.
"iPad Apps That Support Literacy" with the group. I created this Google Doc a few months back for my SimpleK12 presentation iPad Apps To Support Literacy In The Library and Throughout The School. Since then, people from all over the world have added to this Google Doc sharing different apps that fit into the different categories such as Reading Apps, Storybook Apps, Vocabulary Apps, and Storytelling Apps.
It is so much fun to share all of new online tools and apps with the teachers and librarians that came to Dallas County Reading....
and I love how the learning and sharing just keeps going.
It just shows us.....there is always a little tool for everyone!
