Today's Newsletter: Smashing Apps

Nothing like starting out the week with a new buzzword: Have you heard about “app smashing”? Also known as stacking, app smashing is the process of using multiple apps to complete a particular project. Kelly Mendoza at Graphite details some examples from the most recent CUE conference last month. Edutopia looks at app smashing via Chromebook here . The iPad for schools blog credits @gregkulowiec with the creation of the phrase. Want some examples? Here are three thanks to the Innovation:Education blog. Some districts have even started app smashing days. I love the concept. It’s the latest, greatest example of how true innovation starts in the classroom!
