TEACHING – Teachers have assessed the quality of the apps as well as the age of the students for whom they are intended and their arguments can be viewed in this new tab of the Play Store Google’s Play Store will offer a new category for kidss educational apps in the U.S. in the coming days. At a time when they are confined because of the coronavirus and have to take lessons from home, this selection is intended to help students and their parents to locate reliable programs. All of the tools on the tab have indeed been “approved by teachers”, says The Verge.

Only apps that have received a good grade from faculty members have been selected. Professors and teachers assessed the quality of the tools and the age of the users they are targeting. They also justified their opinions and these explanations appear next to each program chosen to appear in the “Children” category.

Available in the United States at this time

This new section will initially be available only for American users. Google has said, however, that its teams are working on an international launch planned for the coming months. The Californian giant had already started to consider setting up a category of apps validated by teachers before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But the need for such a selection of programs has become more pressing due to current events. The company has accelerated the development of its offer, which was initially to be offered in the course of 2020. It also pointed out that some apps were not yet present in the section but that they would also be added as quickly as possible. Ultimately, around 1,000 titles will be available.
