The 2021 AASL Best Digital Tools For Teaching & Learning Collection By Destiny Is Here!

One of my favorite announcements every year is when the American Association of School Librarians announce the Best Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning. 

And today, was that announcement!  
As shared in the ALA Member News

CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has released its annual list of Best Digital Tools for Teaching & Learning. The recognition honors electronic resources that provide enhanced learning and curriculum development for school librarians and their educator collaborators. The list can be found at www.ala.org/aasl/best.

“Like everything else this year, the committee's work was influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mary Morgan Ryan, committee chair. “The digital tools honored in 2021 demonstrate how education has stepped up to support remote and blended learning environments. They provide high-quality resources for many content areas and engaging learning activities. In developing the list, the committee also focused on equity and access.”

On the AASL site, you will find this years list, along with previous years, here.
This list is very helpful as it describes each app with grade level, uses and special features.  
With Collections by Destiny being the way I curate and share resources with our teachers, students and others, I create a Collection of the Best Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning every year.
Today, I created the 2021 AASL Best Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning Collection by Destiny that you can find here. This is a public Collection that we all can use and share.  

I plan to share this with our teachers soon so they can spend a little time this summer exploring all of the amazing new award winners. 

Congratulations to all of the winners!  And a big thanks to AASL for bringing together these digital tools year after year.
