ATL Resource Guide - Tracker Apps

Over the last few weeks since releasing our first product, Skill Tracker, we’ve been fortunate to receive some excellent feedback – a lot of it product related. However, interestingly, we’ve also heard through our intelligence gathering, that teachers, MYP coordinators and schools are hungry for more resources on teaching ATL skills. Of course, we love saying that our blogs are some of the best resources out there. Yet, we also know that our blogs are only a few months old and that there are some other extremely valuable resources available online to anyone. We recently compiled some of the resources that we have used personally or that we have come across in our work for one of our customers. Of course, we love it when people provide even more information – we’re sure that there are even more resources out there – we just haven’t come across them yet. If you know of any sites pertaining to ATL skills or simply excellent sites on pedagogy, feel free to share them in the comments section. We’ll be certain to include them in our next installment on ATL Resources.
