Kathy Schrock – Show Notes #57 – Curation Trends: Finding the Best Teaching Apps, Tools and Resources

Kathy Schrock is an expert curator. She has been a teacher, a librarian, and a district technology director. She maintains a popular website full of curating sources aimed at helping teachers. She has been working with computers since 1972 and finds that mobile devices, apps, and site design are the current trends now.

Kathy feels beginning educators should start find an application that can be used in several content areas. She usually recommends people learn how to screencast first, because that skill can be used for many different lessons. Then she recommends building a PLN (Personal Learning Network) with likeminded educators around the world.

Kathy reminds educators to pay it forward and to give back to your PLN as well as being a consumer of sources.
