    We are developing an apps site and want input from teachers. What search capabilities do you need from an apps site?

    If you mean what apps are we looking for...for me it's definitely more classroom management apps lie for grading, attendance, etc...but it needs to be customizable for teachers in all subjects areas. I teach physical education at the elementary level so my needs might be different than a HS PE Teacher or a classroom teacher, or History, etc...as for the site itself, quality reviews of the apps from actual teachers in the field and video tutorials on various ways to use the apps in the classroom. Ideas for implementing ipads in the classroom for all subject areas would be nice too.

    Do you already have a site created or is this an idea waiting to be planted? Thanks for asking for our input!

    This is still in planning stages, so we need your wish list, HOW do you want to search? What information do you need about each app?

    The common core standards would be great!

    if its an app search sight you will have a hard time competing with quixey unless it just education related apps only.
