As we continue to move forward with 21st century skills and tools, the use of smartphones in the classroom will become a highly debated topic. Some teachers at the high school are already venturing down that path and will prove to be the trailblazers for our district. While reading about some of the apps that students can use in school, I came across this android app called Snapanda. It is basically a dictionary app that uses the phone's camera feature to allow the user to select the word they don't understand from a piece of print text. Very cool app and of course free.
