Can I learn to work on either platform? Part 1 of my blog post "Learning to love in a dual-platform relationship". #DellXPS
When a representative from Dell approached me and asked if I would like to receive the Dell XPS 15 Touch laptop and review it, I was excited! Being a Mac user, I was anxious to both work with this powerhouse of a laptop as we...

A local newspaper article today spotlights a teacher-recommended content-based app, installed on some middle school iPads, that had a rating of 4+ (all ages) but contained some age-inappropriate images and content. The superintendent stated "apparently she (the teacher) didn't look at it very deeply" and the superintendent also stated "(ratings) are one of the things we rely on" and "it was in the education category."

This brings to mind two points-- thoroughly vetting a content-based app is important and, when possible, having two teachers conduct the review is best. Besides spotting something that may not be age-appropriate in a content-based app, as educators, we want to make sure the content is pedagogically sound.

Secondly, as we all know, even the content of films that are rated G or PG-13 sometimes surprises us, and the only way to be sure the movie or app are worthwhile for use in the classroom is to view it or try it out.
