Class Apps is an NCTA resource collection sponsored by the NCTA National Coordinating Site at TEA, University of Colorado Boulder. Each “App” focuses on a timely topic or “best practice” presented by an NCTA consulting scholar, seminar leader, teacher alum, or author. How can you use the videos?
- Take a “quick course” on a current topic you can integrate into your teaching
- Choose a video to show in class
- See how NCTA alumni are using new resources successfully
- Hear what authors have to say about using their new books in the classroom
Our NCTA Class Apps are housed on the NCTA national website and new titles are added to the Class Apps each semester. Check out the full menu of titles at NCTA Class Apps on the NCTA national website.
