David is a high school teacher at North Atlanta High. This summer we met at the Georgia Virtual School Symposium in Athens, Georgia where I had the chance to attend his awesome class titled,

…30 Apps in 30 Minutes.

David has always had an interest in Tech… he says, “I found something that I was good at…”

In our interview we focus on four points…

1)      His 6 favorite apps

2)      The cost of apps (In a word…cheap!)

3)      Engaging!

4)      Ease of use…

David advises…in looking for apps, “Find what works in your classroom…and then find an app that will help you. If it doesn't work…then adjust.”

Most importantly…David comments, “Don’t be afraid!”

He has amazing advice for apps to use and why as well as how to find the best apps.

I know that you will find this episode brain food!

Here are the 6 Apps that we talk about and their websites.
