Using apps in the classroom: What the research to date is telling us about their impact on teaching and learning, behaviour management, and home-school communications

Jessica Zacher Pandya is an American educator who is Chair of the Liberal Studies Department and Professor in the Departments of Teacher Education and Liberal Studies at California State University, Long Beach. She has taught and published widely on literacy and cultural diversity, the impact of high stakes testing on English language learners and digital literacies

Jessica will be visiting Victoria in June-July to work with educators at REDI - Research for Educational Impact: Deakin University's Strategic Research Centre for research in Education, and to deliver a keynote at the ALEA National Conference.

The VATE Curriculum Committee has invited Jessica to speak on her latest area of research – the various ways in which teachers are using apps in the classroom, the impact they are having on student learning and behaviour, and the ways in which they are being used for home-school communications.

As well as discussing her research findings Jessica is interested in hearing the perspectives of Australian teachers on these matters. Additional information can be found here.
