Every Thursday the Facebook group ‘Educational App Talk’ E.A.T. organizes a chat on different educational topics and features a variety of hosts. Participants are teachers, educators, parents, authors, and developers of educational applications. Chats are organized either as a presentation of innovative applications, done by the developer/company or as a broad discussion, where all participants share their opinions, knowledge, and experiences.
The next "EAT" chat will be on 8/8/19
HOST: Craig Schatten
TOPIC: Creating an app while managing a full-time teaching career! How do you find the time?A child’s first encounters with music should be playful, meaningful, and motivating. Our games are designed for four to ten-year-olds to gain music appreciation by immersing them in a world of music as they build and arrange songs. Our team has over 40 years of experience designing and refining games for children in early childhood classrooms. We have seen first hand how children learn when they are given the space and freedom to experiment at their own pace, follow their interests, and create their own experience. About Craig: He is the Director of Education and a full-time Preschool teacher at Kids' Canvas in Brooklyn. Craig has taught Preschool, Prek and Kindergarten since 2000. His company is called Mus-ED Learning and Studio Island: Record A Song is their first app, soon to be available on the App Store. The core team consists of Craig, a programmer, and three other teachers (one of whom is his co-teacher in the classroom)! They all have various passions outside of the classroom (including music, art, acting, comedy, and programming). Craig's first exposure to making apps was as an Early Career Fellow for the Fred Rogers Center where he created Alien Assignment and helped work on other apps.
HUGE THANKS to Tatyana for organizing and operating EdAppTalk for all these years! She is an ANGEL and a very talented app developer. Check out Belmath Apps HERE!
Prompted by their grandkids’ math questions and problems, Tatyana and her husband (who is the software developer) decided to reach more children helping them to master basic math skills. They published a few tablets, phone and desktop applications for arithmetic practice and have been really getting the downloads lately! 🔴 CHECK OUT Belmath Apps HERE 🔴
