To launch the App Store you need to click on the icon that looks like a store window at the top right hand side of your screen. Once in the App Store you look around and find the app that will meet your needs or your student's needs. When you click on a an app you will get information about the app along with a description and even a list of apps that are similar to the one you are currently looking at. Once you have found the app you want to use it is time to install it. If it is a free app you simply click on the "Free" button and then check mark the groups you want to use the app with. You can choose to use the app with more than one group you are the owner of. If the app cost you will have to purchase it and then choose the group or groups you would like the app installed to. The licenses for the apps do last 1 year from the day they are purchased.
Once you have your app or apps installed in the groups you are ready to go. You can manage your apps by click on the wrench icon. For example you really like an app and want to add it to another group you would go to the wrench to edit which groups has access to that app. The 4 square icon launches a window for you to view all of your apps, where you can open them. You can also add to the right hand side the apps you are using the most for quick launch. To close the apps all you have to do is click on the X at the top right hand corner.
Students also have the 4 square app launcher. Students do need to be in your group in their Edmodo account to access the apps you have assigned to them. If they try to launch an app via their home screen in Edmodo they may not see it.

- I like to give my students a day a play. I call it sandbox time. Let them explore the app, see what they can create or do within the app. Have them show each other what they learned.
