Teachers Cheat Sheet for Evaluating Educational Apps
For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here is one of our popular visuals we published a few months ago featuring some useful tips to follow when evaluating educational apps. This work is based on Apple’s Apps in The Classroom Guide which you can access for free from this link. The guide outlines 5 main criteria to work on when assessing the educational potential of apps: engagement, developmental appropriateness, instructional design, motivation, and accessibility. For each of these criteria, a number of questions are posed to help teachers determine whether the app is aligned with that criteria or not. Check them out and share with us your feedback.
