Every month Educational Technology and Mobile Learning features a list of some popular educational apps for teachers. The selections I share here are based on personal criteria and are therefore not to be regarded as recommendations from any third party. I do welcome app suggestions from others but only when apps have a REAl educational value that they will find their way to such lists.
