AASL Recommended App: Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)

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

The DPLA suite of apps “brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage sites making them freely available to students and teachers.” What better place to find free, quality content for your students! Looking for more ideas? AASL suggests getting students to develop their own apps. You could even hold a DPLA Hackathon!

The app is available on iOS and Android devices. AASL recommends it for Middle and High School students.
