20+ Educational Tools and Apps That Support 21st Century Learning

October 8, 2015                    
Technology has radically transformed the notion of education to the extent that a label such as 21st century learning is a commonplace in the nascent teaching literature. There are now multiple forms of learning (e.g flipped, blended, synchronous/asynchronous, mobile...etc) that are primarily shaped and mediated by some sort of technology be it web or mobile based. This is, in our eyes, not technological determinism as some prefer to call it but rather an appropriation of the emerging technologies for the service of education. Technology, as we like to think about it,  is  an amplifier of learning. It enhances, extends and creates learning possibilities that, just a decade ago, would have been unimaginable.

The purpose of today’s post is to share with you some of the tools and apps that best epitomize this notion of 21st century learning. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more categories and tools.

1-Apps and websites for learning coding



2- Tools for curating educational content

3- Assessment tools



4- Tools for gathering feedback from students
5- Tools for flipped classroom


6- Augmented reality apps
