Last summer, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) announced their Best Apps for Teaching and Learning 2017. The apps encourage qualities such as creativity and collaboration, and encourage discovery and curiosity.
Quizizz is “a game-based tool for class review or assessment. It provides class and student level data and works on any device with a browser. You can find quizzes made by other teachers or create your own, and you can conduct “live” quizzes or assign a quiz as homework. Students play together but each at their own pace. The app has gamification elements like avatars and memes.”
Platform: iOS and Android
