20+ Incredible Digital Research Apps

“Technology is enabling our need to be mobile. We want to ensure that learning matches our lifestyle.”- Tony Bingham

Our learners live in a connected world and daily use their devices to learn about the world around them. Unfortunately, much of the news, data, and resources our students consume online is flawed or biased. We need our students to begin to use their devices for more than consuming information. We need them to get into the practice of using their devices to evaluate information, find scholarly and primary resources, and bookmark and properly attribute their discoveries. Tons of free mobile apps engage our students in the research process, which includes planning, searching for information, note-taking, evaluating information, and disseminating their research. Below is a slide presentation (download a pdf for free) of over 20 apps to help your students become active digital researchers. To discover more attend my free webinar this Friday, September 25th, at 4pmET/9pmUK. Join the American TESOL web room as a GUEST here, Americantesol.adobeconnect.com/terrell.
