In the Spotlight with Patrick Larsson of Happi Papi

In the Spotlight with Patrick Larsson of Happi Papi | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

This week I am featuring Patrick Larsson of Happi Papi.  This past spring I heard about a new program they were putting together that would provide teachers free access to iPad apps they could use for the classroom, and at the same time, provide developers a chance to put their apps into the educational market.  A win-win situation in my eyes!  Patrick talks to us more about how they got into the business of developing apps and why they started the App Evaluation/Teacher Program.
