Recommended App: David Wiesner’s Spot

spotRecently, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) came out with their 25 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning for 2015.  The apps were chosen because they foster innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.

This week we highlight David Wiesner’s Spot.  This app allows users to “zoom closer and closer into the illustrations and discover unseen worlds, which, in turn, beg to be further investigated. They will delight in dust bunnies that hop when touched, welding ladybugs, a family of insects enjoying a winter day, and a host of other unexpected surprises.”

The app is recommended for early Elementary K-2 students.  It is available on IOS for $4.99.  This video gives you a quick introduction to the app:
