One of the biggest complaints many of us have about products and services used in education is that we don't really have apps and products that are rated by a neutral 3rd party. Is there such a thing? Well, for me, knowing what a teacher thinks is important. I've been talking with Kirby from Classroom Window about what they are doing and am very impressed. It is launching public beta today and there is a sweepstakes for joining and rating products. I think that initially the launch will be simple but there is a lot of possibility for a social-media style rating system for software and classroom tools by teachers on a neutral site. I love the idea.
