Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps I am conducting a series of workshops in Florida and was asked to share a rubric to help teachers evaluate educational apps as part of the workshop. In 2010 Harry Walker developed a rubric, and I used his rubric (with some modifications by Kathy Schrock) as the basis for mine. (Read Harry Walker's paper Evaluating the Effectiveness of Apps for Mobile Devices.) I kept in mind that some apps are used to practice a discrete skill or present information just one time. Others are creative apps that a learner may use again and again, so it's a challenge to craft a rubric that can be used for a wide span of purposes. I tried to make my rubric work for the broadest range of apps, from drill and practice to creative endeavors, while stressing the purpose for using the app. My rubric also emphasizes the ability to customize content or settings and how the app encourages the use of higher order thinking skills. Here's what I chose to spotlight in my rubric: Relevance Customization Feedback Engagement

11 Videograbadores de pantalla para tutoriales "Momo sabía escuchar de tal manera que a la gente tonta se le ocurrían, de repente, ideas muy inteligentes. No porque dijera o preguntara algo que llevara a los demás a pensar esas ideas, no; simplemente estaba allí y escuchaba con toda su atención y toda simpatía. Mientras tanto miraba al otro con sus grandes ojos negros y el otro en cuestión notaba de inmediato cómo se le ocurrían pensamientos que nunca hubiera creído que estaban en él. Sabía escuchar de tal manera que la gente perpleja o indecisa sabía muy bien, de repente, qué era lo que quería. Y si alguien creía que su vida estaba totalmente perdida y que era insignificante y que él mismo no era más que uno entre millones, y que no importaba nada y que se podía sustituir con la misma facilidad que una maceta rota, iba y le contaba todo eso a la pequeña Momo, y le resultaba claro, de modo misterioso mientras hablaba, que tal como era sólo había uno entre todos los hombres y que, por eso, era importante a su manera, para el mundo".

There are many different ways of telling a story, but everything starts with an idea.
