Det finns många bra pedagogiska appar till yngre elever som också skulle kunna användas till de äldre eleverna om det inte vore för den naiva layouten och hejaropen med småbarnsröster… Superbraaaa!!! För att fånga de äldre eleverna behövs en helt annan layout för att de ska tycka att det är ok, även innehållet måste spegla de äldre elevernas intressen och vardag.
