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.
The app The New Immigrants: NYC 1880-1924 “explores the immigrant experience through a carefully curated collection of over 100 artifacts that includes photos, documents, newspaper articles, political cartoons, oral histories, videos and much more. This is a comprehensive collection of primary and secondary sources and images related to the second wave of U.S. immigration. The “Teaching Immigration” section provides sample lesson plans, teaching strategies to develop historical thinking skills, and document based performance tasks.”
