If you attend the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Emerging Tech community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.

There are roughly 2.2 million apps in the Apple App Store. There are even more in Google Play. How does one decide which to download? What factors into a decision to choose one over another? When are both (or more) valuable? In this session, Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair, New Canaan High School, CT, whose phone is ridiculously app-loaded, showcases her 30 favorites (yes, one can have 30 favorites when there are 500 to begin with). This summer edWebinar focuses on personalizing one’s info-tainment universe. Expect a discussion of Pandora vs. Spotify vs. Soundcloud; TV and movie streaming; podcasts and news packaging; building playlists; photo editing; radio streaming; exercise programing, and more. This recorded session will benefit all librarians.
