Background | The Appy Hour series is an informal, half-day workshop that takes place each month around a content-area or instructional theme.  Often teacher-led, these sessions are designed to provide participants exposure to numerous free or inexpensive mobile applications, followed by time to explore how the applications can be integrated into classroom instruction.
