Twelve educational apps that offer free Common Core-aligned curriculum are joining for a one-day sale Dec. 7. The discount day is being organized by Apps With Curriculum, a National Board Certified teacher’s movement to create curriculum for book apps.
“This group of developers are trendsetters that are joining with Apps With Curriculum and classroom teachers to educate,” said Cyndie Sebourn, founder of Apps With Curriculum. “They recognize the immeasurable value of providing curriculum for their book apps and are excited about being a valued asset to education.”
Discounted apps and free curriculum can be downloaded at http://appswithcurriculum.com/curriculum/.
“Apps With Curriculum links book app developers with teachers to promote 21st Century Learning Skills, said Sebourn, a retired teacher who was in the classroom for 25 years. “With curriculum, book apps serve a higher purpose. They become educational tools that provide extended learning for the classroom. Educators are excited to see Project-Based Learning and reading strategies that align with Common Core Standards and incorporate Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. It empowers them to teach with technology and saves them countless hours in lesson planning.”
Apps With Curriculum was formed by Cyndie Sebourn, a retired National Board Certified Teacher, to create curriculum for book app makers. Sebourn also owns Sascyn Publishing, Inc., which creates educational book apps.
