168: Deployment 2016, Part 6: Apps and Accessories

Fraser and Bradley continue with the 2016 Deployment series with a discussion about apps and accessories. The most common question is “which apps should we use?” And that is exactly the wrong question to ask. When you ask what the “best app” is for some specific topic, you’re thinking about apps in the wrong way. You’re thinking about apps like textbooks. Over six years, we have learned that a better approach to teaching with iPad is to ask “how does this app allow the student to express their learning?”
