From the fabulous Langwitches blog:
The app development market is exploding. More and more companies are creating “educational apps”. In some cases, they are simply digital versions of a book or a web based tool. Some seem to have “no educational value” to it at all, but are still sold under the label of “education”. Although, I usually don’t resort to borderline cuss words, I really liked the expression of “crapware”, Sarah Perez over at TechCrunch used when she was reviewing a new app for the Pre-School/Kindergarten crowd.
**Langwitch has created the following iPad App Evaluation for the classroom info-flyer to be used by teachers to critically look at each app they are contemplating using with their students.
