2015 Best Websites and Apps from AASL

AASL (American Association of School Librarians) Best Apps for Teaching and Learning 2015
AASL Best Apps 2015

2015 AASL (American Association of School Librarians) Best Websites and Apps were shared at the recent American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in San Francisco. The School Library Journal blog post by Joyce Valenza includes information about the vetting process used by the committees and a list of the committee members.

The  AASL Best Apps selections highlight the use of the apps for inquiry-based teaching and learning. One of the reasons this list stands out from others is that  The AASL Best Apps for Teaching and Learning 2015 encourage participation and use by communities of learners. 

The website selections were chosen using similar criteria. Not only are these a great list of resources but they also align with the standards and best practices for school libraries. Sharing the best websites list with others is made easier thanks to a free AASL webinar by Heather Moorefield-Lang. She shares the sites and how they are being used in her webinar. Check it out!
