The emphasis in this Resource is on Free Apps that can be used by the Teacher and/or that the Teacher may recommend to be used by the Students - with the Student as Active Collaborator/Contributor/Producer.

These Apps try to move beyond the 'drill and practice' type - they are, hopefully, less of the 'student as consumer' type and aim to support collaborative, managed learning.
