The cheat sheet to choosing effective education apps - Daily Genius - 7 views

  •  
    "In 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?
    There are, of course, many other questions to consider when trying out an iPad app (or any other smart device app) for classroom usage. However, I'd recommend taking your deliberate time and spending as much time testing, researching, and trying out as many apps as possible."
