I love classroom technology, but the market has been flooded with educational apps with many uses and purposes. The problem for many educators is figuring out which one to use. For those of us that agonize over making the best decision, not just a decision, it can be paralyzing. If you have spent 45 minutes choosing the best adult coloring book on Amazon, you know what I mean.
Choosing an assessment app for your classroom and students can be a particular challenge. If you devote classroom time to teaching students how to use an app or tool only to discover that it wasn’t the best fit, you have lost valuable time and possibly the trust of your students. If you experiment with a dozen apps directly on your students, at some point they will experience overload or fatigue.
