Improving ELA Skills Anytime, Anywhere
With the new school year upon us, teachers face the challenge of implementing Common Core Standards and increasingly using technology with an emphasis on literacy. Mobile devices are increasingly being used in the classroom and by students in their daily lives. In this month’s Mobile Learning webinar, presenter Darla Moore introduced new ways of using mobile apps to improve literacy for both middle school and high school students. She introduced several apps along with both teaching strategies for how to use them and also ways to implement them with the new state standards.
