The Really Good Stuff Digital Learning Collection is here! (Read my review.) This app is a digital supplemental curriculum solution for K-2nd grade – aligned with standards it includes over 150 curated apps inside their one simple app to install. I was blown away when I took a recent tour and saw that you can customize a playlist of games for each student based on standards and the personal needs of each student.
Finally, we get the feedback that we need on apps for young children and meet content standards. You’ll want to sign up for your free 30-day trial at coolcatteacher.com/reallygoodstuff and remember – it is only one app – all of the other apps are inside this one simple digital learning collection from Really Good Stuff. Now, that’s good stuff for every K-2nd grade iPad or Google Play enabled tablet!
