You may have already “app-smashed” without knowing it! If you used several apps in sequence to accomplish something useful that you couldn’t do otherwise, you’ve app smashed.

Not sure whether you’ve done this? Wonder why you ever would? Want to see examples and learn how? Then join us when FridayLive! will address these questions.

Session I (June 23): Introduction, Examples, Resources – Getting Started

We’ll introduce and demonstrate examples that go well beyond the “wow” factor of just using multiple apps. We’ll explain “why” and examine some “how” strategies for App Smashing in courses and faculty development. We’ll take a look at a few examples of student work We’ll recommend App Smashing resources, and invite volunteers to develop their own App Smashing projects in preparation for Session II (June 30).
