Recommended App: Pocket

Pocket iconRecently, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) came out with their 25 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning for 2014.  The apps were chosen because they foster innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.

Pocket is one such app.  It’s a ‘save-for-later’ app that allows users to save items as they find them online, then read them later.  It’s even integrated into some other apps like Twitter and Zite.  AASL recommends having students collect their research articles using the app to make the bibliographic process easier.

The app is free and is available on iOS and Android.  It can also be used on any computer via your web browser.  It is recommended for grades 3-12.  Check out the promotional video for more information:
