Most educational apps for kids aren’t “developmentally appropriate.” Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, looked at 171 apps across the top 10 paid and free lists on Apple and Android for math and literacy, and found that most don’t use established tactics for teaching preschoolers. Almost 19% didn’t provide any instructions at all and less than 10% had on-screen or character demonstrations. Meanwhile, only 25% of the apps explained how to use the app in detail. One expert warns that many apps are “falsely marketed as educational.” (The Hechinger Report)
