GLASGOW, SCOTLAND, November 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- EducationalAppStore.com has unveiled the 'T4S powered by EAS' app - a discovery app designed to make it easier for teachers and students to find educational apps that best suit their learning styles, interests and preferences. ---
The app has been developed by the EducationalAppStore.com in collaboration with Tablets for Schools for all the primary and secondary educational institutions involved in the Nexus 7 implementation. The app is available on Google Play store and can be downloaded for free.
EducationalAppStore.com founder Justin Smith, believes that a resource like 'T4S powered by EAS' is vital for schools, as the number of educational apps available for the Android platform is continuing to grow, making it more difficult for people to discover high-quality learning apps.
Justin said that 'with more than 50,000 educational apps available only in the Google Play store, it can be daunting for both educators and students to find apps that are safe, accurate in their educational content and motivating.'
The app covers a spectrum of educational subjects such as: Geography, Math and English and filters that will allow you to find the free and paid apps for each educational stage Designed as a container app, where filters and in-depth reviews give you the assurance that the apps fulfil learning outcomes, 'T4S powered by EAS' also allows users to have their say.
The EducationalAppStore.com review team use the EAS Certification process, created to benchmark apps against a set of pedagogical criteria and academic research. The community of teachers and students can join the EAS efforts of finding the best learning tools by rating and reviewing the apps they choose to use. When using the 'T4S Powered by EAS' app, teachers and students can see the apps reviewed and used in their school and can also find out which apps are the other schools in the programme using for different subjects.
Justin thinks that 'users' feedback is very important in order to continuously support, improve and create standard for the use of tablets and apps in Education'.
Teachers are also encouraged to get in touch if they need a specific app for a particular lesson plan or project. EAS provides a personalised consultation service for teachers who want to implement more apps with the EAS Certified badge, the standard for apps that fit into the school curriculum.
Justin believes that 'the content used is very important in order to prove that learners will attain results using mobile technology at school. As the selected App Advisor for Tablets for Schools, we can show you what educational content is available in the market and give you a better understanding of what can be achieved with apps.
Mobile technology learning tools can help educators tailor pedagogy, curriculum and learning environments to meet the needs and aspirations of individual learners. 'T4S powered by EAS' app will help students and teachers find what they need in terms of educational apps, and will open the way for more projects like the one supported by Tablets for Schools and EducationalAppStore.com.
