It's back! A Matter of App, a children's educational app review blog has been silent since October of last year. With seven thought provoking posts so far this month, Dr. Cynthia Chiong, is back on my must read blog list.She reviews and rates apps in four areas; developmental appropriateness, balance, sustainability, and parental involvement.
In her post, Trend Alert: Apps that encourage you to take your eyes OFF the screen, Dr. Chiong referenced several apps. I tried Alien Assignment by the Fred Rogers Center at Saint Vincent College. It required the use of the camera and would fit in well with other classification activities.
Check out Dr. Chiong's blog for great app reviews and posts that keep you coming back!
