56,000 (& Counting) Education Apps Worth Knowing About

56,000 (& Counting) Education Apps Worth Knowing About | Alligood-PLN | Scoop.it

You probably saw the title of this post and thought ‘okay there’s no friggin’ way he’s going to assemble a list of the best 50,000 education apps. But thanks to a partnership between Edudemic and FindTheBest, we’ve done just that. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a robust directory of, as of this writing, about 56,000 education apps.

 

But it’s not just a list… it’s a finely tuned directory capable of sorting out all the apps in ways not even available in the iTunes or Mac App stores. For example, you can now find out the average price of all education apps to see where your app falls. (Hint: the average price of an education app is $2.66)

Kathleen Cercone's curator insight, January 27, 2013 9:17 AM

Hunting down classic literature and important manuscripts may mean more than a quick Google search for many of us. You may turn to paid sources like Amazon or even (the humanity!) turn to printed books in your library. The horror! We kid. We love the library and feature effective ways to use libraries all the time.
