The Instructional Tech Connection

Weekly News, Tips, & Tricks from ITF Joanna Crawford

One Best Thing

One Best Thing is a series of short instructional, free, iBooks found in the Apple iBooks Store. They can be accessed on your MacBook, iPad, or iPhone and are designed to guide teachers through masterful use of certain iPad apps in the learning environment.


"The Apps in the Classroom series was created to provide teachers with a few ideas on how to integrate content creation apps into daily classroom instruction. Each guide includes a collection of activities that span age ranges and subjects and can be modified to work in your own learning environment. Inspired by Apple Distinguished Educators, the activities are designed to encourage students to think in new ways and help them take a creative approach to applying and demonstrating learning."
