Frequently Asked Questions
Why was My Kid’s Locker created?
There are over 800,000 apps and counting in the Apple Store alone! Frustrated families and educators search for educational apps. I take the best apps and Digital Literacy Resources used on devices in schools and at homes and blog about them. I review the apps on grade appropriate levels for the user to be independent and entertainment. I then place them in Grade appropriate levels where we feel the user can be successful and confident. I help children, families and educators to learn in a confident and safe way through apps. I also have resources for those interested in becoming a Google Educator.
What can parents do?
Children play apps randomly downloaded and often parents do not know which ones are the best. I have reviewed many school district apps in the Vancouver area. We only post those apps that have educational value and place them in their appropriate categories. I also try our best to provide as many free apps as possible.
What can educators do?
I do my best to put only apps that could meet prescribed learning outcomes from the British Columbia Ministry of Education. These prescribed learning outcomes can be found in the Learning Opportunities section. Teachers can confidently bring in iPads to their classrooms and meet their students learning needs. In addition, teachers can group students to learn through different apps about different subjects.
