App Toolboxes for 5th+

HaikuDeck Thinglink Blogger MovieMaker

The instructional technology team recently updated the recommended apps lists for 5th grade and up. App developers are constantly updating their products and their terms of service to meet the needs of their users. A few notable changes to the GCISD App Categories include:

  • Added a list of Keyboarding Resources for K-8.
  • Removed WeVideo as a recommended video editor because the free version has a limit of 7 minutes.
  • Added MovieMaker for secondary students with Windows laptops. It can be installed via LANDesk.
  • Added HaikuDeck as a presentation tool. They have updated their terms of service so any student can use it with parent permission (which is included in registration.)
