Prof. Joyce Valenza presented panel and pre-conference sessions with AASL’s 2015 Best Apps and Best Websites for Teaching & Learning Committees at ALA Annual in San Francisco. (See her blog post.) This work was the result of a year-long selection process to recognize digital resources of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning as embodied in the AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. The selected apps and sites foster student innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.
