Educational App Store: Special Education Apps
The Educational App Store (EAS) certification is an independent and rigorous assessment of an app's performance from a learning perspective.
Their organization evaluates apps against specific criteria, which have been created in collaboration with Mike Sharples, Professor of Educational Technology at the Open University and a community of EAS-certified teachers. These criteria assess the aspects that make up an educational app and which are important from a learning perspective, such as content, relevance to the national curriculum, navigation and usability. This process is undertaken by a practicing teacher with experience in the relevant subject and age range the app caters for.
