The 2019 AASL Best Apps and Websites Are Here...Check Them Out, Friends!

This summer, at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington DC, the AASL Best Apps and Best Websites were announced.  This is always one of my favorite events of the year. 

The apps and websites that were announced as winners today were incredible.  Congrats to all of the winners and the people who create, support and show us how to use them.  
For the last several years, I have served on the AASL Best Websites and Apps Committees.  The last two years, I have been part of the amazing Best Apps Committee, along with our chair, Mary Morgan Ryan and other awesome friends listed above.
As shared on this slide, Our charge is to develop an annual list of top apps that AASL will recognize as being the best of the best for teaching and learning. 
When making our selections we connected them to the AASL Shared Foundations which I find so helpful in not only evaluating the apps, but thinking of ways I will use them in my practice as a teacher and librarian.

Let's get right to the point!
