On June 25, 2016 the AASL Best Apps for Teaching and Learning were revealed at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. The list of twenty-five apps is released annually by a committee of ten school librarians and professors from the American Association of School Librarians. Since the award started in 2013, the AASL has recognized 100 educational apps that span all grade levels and content areas. Members of the 2016 AASL Best Apps committee spent the past year year testing, reviewing and discussing apps in five categories: STEM, Books, Humanities & Arts, Content Creation and Organisation & Management. Committee members sought out innovative, low-cost apps that could be used in 21st century classrooms and libraries.
