Being an instructional technology coach, I am always looking for apps with educational value. I feel there is definitely a place in education for mobile devices. However, I feel like many view student usage of these devices as nothing more than glorified “play time”. Thus I have put together a short list of some great apps that will allow students to use their mobile device as an enhanced “creation station” where they truly have the opportunity to express themselves.
