Welcome to our site.
This site will keep users up to date on how the rapidly changing world of apps for portable devices like ipads and phones can be used to support learning. Not only will we review apps that developers specifically target at the education community, we will show how apps developed for more general applications can be tailored to support learning. Because of our particular expertise in literacy, we will focus on how research-based literacy "best practices" like reading, writing and discussing can support learning in the various disciplines through the use of apps--digital tools that, with increasing sophistication, can enhance the way students learn in various disciplines. The site is under construction, and we will be updating sections weekly. Stay tuned.
This site supports our recently published book, Using iPad and iPhone Apps for Learning with Literacy Across the Curriculum available for purchase on the Amazon Kindle bookstore and on the Apple iBooks app.
