Sourcing the best educational apps
Balefire Labs evaluates and lists over 3,000 educational apps for Android and iPhone, so users can source the best apps to learn with.
They check apps to see if they have the instructional design and usability features that have been validated to improve learning outcomes over the last 50 years. The more critical features an app has, the more effective it is likely to be.
They say they exist because parents and educators should have access to a non-biased, objective source of product reviews, so they have the information they need to choose products that best build children’s skills.
