The cheat sheet to choosing effective education apps - Daily Genius - 4 views

    • n an attempt to uncover what works, I combed through a few hundred apps and analyzed them by asking the following questions:

      • How easy is this app to use for less tech-savvy students and teachers?
      • Is the app free? This is crucial for multi-device or BYOD classrooms.
      • What are other educators saying about this app?
      • How are an array of classrooms using this app?
      • How often should the app be used?
      • Can the app be used out of the classroom? Is it designed to be easy enough to use when teachers or classroom leaders aren’t there to help?
