Huge shout out to edSurge and Mary Jo Madda for including Teachers With Apps in the edSurge Top Ten S-cool Tools for Q3-2014! We are so honored to be among such other great resources and want to say Thanks for noticing! Teachers With Apps has been a labor of love and a constant source of gratification for both Anne and I. A BIG thanks go out to all the other teachers, therapists, and educators that write for us on a regular basis!
It’s been a busy summer and start to fall–not just because of the bevvy of edtech events across the country, but also as a result of the vast array of cool tools being used in classrooms.
Every week, EdSurge delivers its educator-specific INSTRUCT newsletter (sign-up here) with a section on “S’Cool Tools,” calling attention to 3-5 edtech tools we’ve found, tested, and given our surging seal of approval.
And out of 60+ S’Cool Tools showcased in INSTRUCT during Q3 (July, August, and September), ten products have risen to the top based on the number of clicks they’ve received from our INSTRUCT readers. Check them out below!
4. Teachers With Apps – Free! Looking for more teacher-recommended tools for school?

All are field-tested by students and teachers; many are free!
