Recently, 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.
The app Historypin made the list. Users can take a picture on their smartphone and put it on the map – creating a modern event. Users can also compare and contrast their images to the past and learn about whatever geographic area they are in! AASL recommends having students “take a photo of a location that interests them and use the app to start a research project into the history of the area.”
