Apps and Sites That Work on All Devices for BYOT

“Honestly, I think we should be delighted people still want to read, be it on a Kindle or a Nook or whatever the latest device is.” By J.K. Rowling

With more and more schools launching, ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ or ‘Bringing Your Own Device’ (BYOT/BYOD) I created a symbaloo of all apps and web tools that work on all devices to help educators get started. Even though I am a firm believe, it doesn’t matter what site/app the students use to show mastery of a concept, some educators need a starting place and many have loved this symbaloo so I, of course, want to pass it along.

Typically when you click on the symbaloo tile it will bring you to a website/app that is linked. This symbaloo is a little different because I can’t embed the symboloo because wordpress doesn’t allow iframe widgets, so I had to make it a screen shot with url link.

If there are sites that work on all devices that you have learned about, I would love to add them to my symbaloo. Please share in the comment section as websites are making apps everyday.

  1. How have your students managed log-ins, esp when you have so many apps,? Do they create log-in IDs for each and every app (and track usernames and passwords)? I have students that are 9-10 years old.

    1. I have managed Id’s different ways for different age groups. With your age group you need to make sure you follow the Coppa law.

      I let students decide on what apps they wanted to use to show mastery so I didn’t use all these at once. When I did use an app/site, I have also made class lists and made their usernames and passwords the same, made index cards so they could refer back to them if they forgot them.
