Have used some of these apps but there are more to look at.

Homeschool FL's curator insight, June 2, 2013 8:33 PM

Educational apps are popping up daily, but the question for parents is, how to know which ones are worth using, and which ones are not? Because let's face it, the app industry is out to make money, and many times app developers are very astute at making an app that "looks" educational, but in reality is just full of ads and sneaky ways of getting your children to buy something.

 

This article lists 46 different websites that review apps for teachers and students. This should help cut through the clutter and help pinpoint the useful from the fluff.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 4, 2013 5:45 AM

Whitney Brusseau's curator insight, March 27, 12:58 PM

I read this article about interactive educational games for kids, and it gave a list of iPad games in multiple subject areas that will engage kids in learning. This might not apply to me right now, but it will be good to know once I enter a classroom of my own to help kids learn in a way that they find fun.

Jammer dat je niet verder kunt inzoomen op de aarde. De kaarten zijn niet erg gedetailleerd. Geeft wel een duidelijk beeld van de veranderingen en de verschuivingen, die blijkbaar in de laatste paar miljoen jaar het hevigst zijn geweest.
