We are very proud to announce that the Glogster iPad application has been chosen by the American Association of School Librarians as one of 2015’s best apps for teaching and learning. It is a fantastic honour to have all the hard work and passion that has gone into the app recognized, and our representatives are excited to be receiving the award in person at the 2015 ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco this weekend.
The AASL best apps list is in its fourth year, and is used by school librarians, teachers and parents around the United States as a guide to the very best learning applications available. This year, Glogster has been placed alongside Adobe, Pixel, LEGO and Buncee as “the best of the best” in the content creation category. We were selected from amongst hundreds of exciting educational apps, based on criteria such as fostering innovation and creativity, encouraging active participation in learning, user-friendliness and cost-effectiveness.
We would like to thank the AASL for this prestigious award, as well as the wider network of AASL members, teachers, students and developers involved in the nomination process. While it is a privilege to be publicly recognized in such a way, our inclusion on the best apps list is a signpost to an even greater honour: the fact that our application is being actively used, engaged with and enjoyed by librarians, educators and learners around the world.
The iPad application was the flagship product in our mission to expand the boundaries of the traditional classroom, and will be joined this year by Glogster for iPhone 4, 5 and 6 and Glogster for Android. We are very excited to make our critically acclaimed content library and creation tool available to an even wider mobile market.
If you haven’t yet downloaded the iPad application, now is a great chance to join our enthusiastic community of international educators and see the Glogster difference for yourself!
