A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | Current Updates | Scoop.it

How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:

Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 2:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."

Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.  I"m embarassed to say I'm still on my 3Gs Iphone and this product won't work for me.  Still, sounds like an apt tool

ClassDojo: A Unique, Techy Tool for Teachers

ClassDojo: A Unique, Techy Tool for Teachers | Current Updates | Scoop.it
For school teachers looking to keep the little monsters under control, ClassDojo is an engaging and innovative web app. It uses cute monsters and pop-up notices to instantly reward good behavior and admonish naughtiness.

 

Sounds like a strong behavior management tool.  I found that rewarding the class for good behavior was much more effective than punishing for bad behavior.  If I were in the face to face classroom (where I spent 25 very memorable years) I'd be working with this app!
