Building on the success of Teachers With Apps, the popular educational resource site for anyone looking for reputable educational apps, Co-Founder, Jayne Clare announced the launch of her new endeavor today. Jayne Clare Consulting, a new service that offers digital technology consulting for any educational entity that is involved with tech. The services offered by JC Consulting consist of guidance beginning with the initial conception of an app or product to the alignment of content to meet curriculum requirements. This process involves beta testing, meticulous assessment, and of course planning for the launch.
Jayne Clare notes, “Learning should be interactive, multi-sensory and, of course, fun. It is important to keep up with what and how children are learning.” Clare has spent a great amount of time in and out of the classroom, devoting her attention to developing, marketing, and field-testing a variety of different educational applications.
Besides understanding the value of a strong fundamental curriculum, Clare believes that children learn best by exploratory experience. Through her work critiquing educational content for both developers and major brands, Clare has now begun consulting full-time. Many applications and products on the market claim to be “educational,” but because many developers lack real experience in the classroom, they often fall short of imperative educational components. The best way to ensure the educational success of a product is to field test it with a cross-section of students and teachers. This guarantees that it will be innovative and engaging, as well as contain relevant educational content. The kids are the real critics and JCC believes that the magic of an app is unknown until the device is placed in a child’s hands.
“Jayne Clare is an experienced educator with her finger on the pulse of mobile learning. Jayne’s passion to share the best educational apps out there through her work with Teachers With Apps is inspiring and serves as a valuable online resource. I’ve worked with Jayne when she was a guest blogger and featured guest on a webinar on BrainPOP Educators, and have always been impressed by her willingness to share her expertise with others. Teachers With Apps is exactly the kind of resource I’d want if I were still teaching!” – Allisyn Levy, BrainPOP
