Ipad App Criteria Form and App Exchange Sheet for early education teachers

Ipad App Criteria Form and App Exchange Sheet for early education teachers

These two forms are useful to make informed decisions about the apps that will be downloaded onto iPad for children's use. A set criteria is used to ensure that the apps will be educational, within budget, relevant and useful. There is such a wide variety of apps to choose from that a process like this should be in place whenever staff wish to recommend and / or suggest apps for early learning centers or primary schools. I have left this in word format so that the forms can be edited if necessary.
