“The app is amazing and children will really enjoy working with it!”
5th March, 2014
We are proud to announce that our Multiplication App has been awarded 5 Stars and EAS Recommended Status by the Educational App Store (EAS).
EAS is an independent store that identifies the very best apps and certifies them from a curriculum/learning outcomes perspective.
In their review, EAS reviewers praised how the app was developed and how easy it is for teachers and pupils to use the app in classroom:
‘Both teachers and learners will find it very easy to navigate the app so there should be no problems in using it in the classroom and at home. Moreover, teachers can use the app for either independent or group learning’.
The flexibility and intuitive nature of the app was also notes by the reviewers:
‘Sometimes apps are amazing on one level but have other things missing that would make it an exception app. However, this app has really been well-thought through and it ticks all the boxes to make it a fantastic app that some other educational apps should benchmark against.’
Read the full review here:
There are now over 100,000 educational apps available in the stores therefore, it is important to be able to identify what makes a good educational app.
The Educational App Store created the EAS Certification in order to benchmark the apps against a set of pedagogical criteria and academic research.
The 10 main things to look for in the best educational apps (according to EAS):
• A strong association with learning outcomes (whether curriculum or non-curriculum based).
• Interactivity with the learner via correction and feedback on any questions that are set.
• An ease of use of the app so that the learner does not need any guidance and teach one’s self if necessary.
• A variety of levels in the app so that learners can progress and different levels of learning within the same age-group can be taken into account.
•The ability to collaborate on work with others and co-create.
•The impetus to motivate learners to go beyond the apps and find more information on the subject at hand.
•The impetus to engage learners and hold their attention to fulfil learning objectives.
•Clear pricing, no in-app purchases and privacy controls.
•Good quality, design and sound features.
•Content without errors in subject matter and/or spelling.
Our app ticked every box within the EAS criteria meaning that they think our app is pretty amazing! We are overwhelmed at the review response and are even more proud of our fantastic educational apps.
