There are thousands of educational apps available with more coming all the time. It can be overwhelming trying to find, try and evaluate just the app that will bring your class or teaching or project into fruition. Now there is a site that can help you find just the right thing, connected to the right learning outcome, without taking up all of your time.

Graphite.org is a site developed by CommonSense Media

that offers comprehensive reviews and ratings of educational apps. You can search on a number of different levels including:

  • Type
  • Subject
  • Grade level
  • Price

The apps that they feature are all vetted by working teachers, not by companies trying to get you to buy their app.  Apps connected with language arts and math are available now. Science is in development. You can also look for apps that aid productivity such as Evernote.  Whether you are exploring apps for yourself or trying to integrate them into the curriculum Graphite can save you time.
