Great quote...

"It is true that too much interactivity, or better yet interactivity without a defined purpose, is not of significant value to our children’s learning and development." Daniel Donahoo

I just read this in an on-line article. So many of the apps that are being advertised to educators have this quality. Just because an app has 5 million ways to 'tap it', doesn't make it interactive.

Being very choosy in app and program use with students, focusing on content depth, and allowing for student proficiency in app use is important. Do not want to get app slap happy and buy/use just because it looks good.

Good apps will stand out!
