Fantastic array of tools for all grade levels. And, since I am a K - 5th grade librarian, many of this will be used this school year.

How awesome to be able to view so many webinars about the same topic! All of them were very informative. I am excited to use several of the ideas. I especially enjoyed the apps that were shared that were not just for the ipad. I don't have access to an iPad during the summer. I have been trying some of them out on my Nook. Really fun. I also enjoyed the apps about creating your own book and publishing using digital tools. How wonderful!

Thanks for sharing.

I found some very useful apps for the classroom. I wish this were more focused/aimed at specific grade levels (many were too advanced for primary class). I definitely want to explore more tools for struggling readers in the primary grades.
