We’re super chuffed to share that MeisterTask has been listed as a 2017 Best App for Teaching & Learning!
Now in its fifth yet, the list of best apps is announced by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). Through the awards, the AASL pledge to recommend “the best of the best” technology resources for school librarians and teachers.
The AASL Committee shared why MeisterTask had made the cut:
“MeisterTask is a user-friendly, visual project/task management and collaboration tool, allowing students and teachers to create Project (“Kanban”) Boards for group tasks. Upon creating a Project, group members can see the tasks that are in progress, as well as those that have been completed. Group members can assign tasks to other members of their group, get notifications as tasks are completed or changed, and/or use widgets such as “due tasks” or “my tasks” to see a list of active tasks.
For schools using Chromebooks, students and teachers can also use the Chrome extension to easily access their Dashboards. If a school has purchased the mind mapping tool, MindMeister, maps can be exported directly into MeisterTask to create a connected project with task synchronization. MeisterTask is a wonderful, intuitive tool to help streamline collaborative projects, keeping groups organized and on task.
Any group project would benefit from this tool. However, specific possible uses in a school library context would be for group inquiry-based research projects, action or social justice projects, or collaborative unit planning among faculty.”
Big thanks to the AASL and our users!
The list was announced at the American Library Association’s annual conference in Chicago on Saturday 24th June.
MeisterTask was announced as a top app for Organization and Management, alongside our friends at IFTTT, Google Keep and Quizizz.
“The apps recognized as Best Apps for Teaching & Learning are of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning, as embodied in AASL’s “Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.” Recognized apps foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration and are user-friendly to encourage a community of learners to explore and discover,” the ASSL announced in their press release.
At MeisterLabs, we’re all about helping teams to collaborate, creatively and innovatively. As a result, we’re delighted to hear that we’re helping school staff and students to do more of this!
We’d like to say a huge thanks to the AASL for including MeisterTask on the list and to any users who nominated MeisterTask ❤️
