No matter how good an App is, it does not create learning - teachers and students do that through constructive engagement with rich learning tasks. Apps that follow an instructive process to a predetermined result are plentiful and only provide superficial interaction with the material presented. However inherently instructive Apps can have a constructive focus if used appropriately.
This presentation will examine how to leverage the use of flexible, open ended, constructive Apps to build higher order cognitive tasks that allow students to control the path of their own learning to produce higher order engagement coupled with deeper meaning and understanding within a collaborative environment.
