The principle objective of the Educational App Store’s Teacher App Library is to support teachers with a carefully-chosen selection of curriculum aligned apps/content for use in the classroom. For most teachers and schools, the searching and testing of apps is something that they do not have the time or the skill set to undertake, hence the reason for creating the App Library.
It saves time & money and supports teachers with a collection of instructional resources for primary and elementary curriculum based apps.

“Only an expert teacher can truly understand how effective an app can be in supporting the curriculum and offering different types of learning. The way Educational App Store does this is through a structured set of guidelines for their teacher reviewers, who bring their personal knowledge and experience to the evaluation of each app”.
