Technology is a big part of our everyday lives and it is changing the way technology is used and viewed in the classroom. Chalkboards have been replaced with iProjectors and playing Oregon Trail in the library is a thing of the past. In a school where once an iPad would have been confiscated, now they are standard issue for kindergartners. Students aren’t the only ones with access to new technology, teachers have many tools to their disposal to make their days easier so they can focus on what’s important- educating the youth of America. Below are the top ten resources recommended to GadellNet this past quarter by practicing teachers as apps that have made a difference in their classrooms. Check them out!
