App Smashing

Are your students and faculty flexing an artist’s palette of apps or merely randomly accessing a rather wimpy list of individual random tools? Creating dashboards for learning is a new essential skill for your students and one you can model. If you are implementing 1:1 or BYOB, this session will prepare you to smash together a variety of digital tools to develop tool literacy in your own school community.

In this interactive presentation we will address:

• In what ways might the creation of dashboards and launchpads/PLEs organize learners' understanding of their personal information landscapes and support productivity, workflow and agency?
• In what ways might the creation of playlists/learning palettes support teaching and learning/
• How do you creatively combine apps to accomplish learning goals more powerfully? More thoughtfully? More artfully? What are your best recipes?
