“Appogogy”: Choosing the right App for Maximum Student Engagement and Content Mastery
With the proliferation of BYOD (e.g., iPads, laptops, tablets) in Title 1 campuses, there is a growing need for educators to use proven strategies for choosing the right App or Web 2.0 tool for their content. Through collaborative conversation with teachers at 15 Title 1 Grade 3-8 campuses, we built a rubric based on Moersch’s research-based H.E.A.T. Framework (Higher Order Thinking, Engaged Learning, Authentic Connections, Technology Use) which can be used by any group to help make careful choices when selecting a digital tool or resource.

In this presentation we will share digital tools that have been thoroughly tested by the schools we coached during the 2011-12 school year -- tools that specifically support content mastery through higher levels of engagement, differentiation, and formative assessment. Participants will be using the "Choosing the Right Tool Rubric" to guide their own thinking about the factors which must be considered when choosing an App or an online tool.
