The Google Play Store has added a new section to its store, aimed at the little ones, where we can find educational applications previously approved by teachers.
Since children are at home, as educational institutions are closed, it is important to find tools and dynamics. On the one hand to continue the learning process, but also in an attempt to group parallel activities as a way of teaching, motivating, stimulating and entertaining.
Google Play Store with a new space just for kids
As a way to contribute with yet another way to help parents, students and teachers in the learning process, a new section has been added to the Android operating system application store.
This is a space on the Google Play Store where there will only be apps for children, which are approved by teachers. This way, it will be easier for parents and teachers to find quality content for the little ones. Thus, they avoid having to install applications that are not quality or that are not exactly suitable for children.
To make this novelty possible, Google partnered with professors and academics. Teaching experts analyze the applications and rate each one based on different aspects. Thus, each app will be classified according to the learning and experience it provides, such as educational content, the age group for which it is intended, whether or not it has advertising, among others.
After being properly analyzed, the applications are designated as “Approved by the Teacher”. In this way, parents realize that these applications are more reliable, which facilitates their search and choice.
In addition, parents can also have access to a kind of report made by teachers, which contains the reasons for the inclusion and approval of the application in that section.
For now this feature will only be available for the United States, however it will be extended to more countries in the coming months.
