The Smithsonian is a national treasure. While you might not be able to take your students to the Smithsonian, with this app you can bring the Smithsonian to your students!

The Smithsonian Channel, is full of videos that explore the history of our planet, life and culture. This app introduces a brand new way to watch, find and explore their vast video collection. In the Story Space, you can find stories based on your interests or curriculum, create your own classroom channel, then sit back and introduce your students to hours of video. Curiosity is rewarded and discovery is at their fingertips. With constant additions to their library of content, you’re guaranteed to find something new every time you open this app.

We live in a society addicted to technology. More smartphones are being used in the classroom and in our offices every day. To help you leverage the technology available to you, we explore, try and share links to apps that can help you and your students.

Every week we select a new app and share its description in our “Apps We Love” column. We do not endorse devices from any one company or receive any kind of compensation for these features. We just share links to apps that can help you teach, learn, work and grow.
