“Building an educational app is one thing, but if you choose to create a tool or a digital space in which children and young people can learn you really need to be thinking about the context. Beyond creating an app for a mobile device, how many developers and edtech companies look beyond the product itself? How are the creators of these tools supporting teachers, parents and even the self-directed learners (students) to best use what they have created?”

As Dan writes Toontastic is a great example for other app developers to use as a model for thinking as they wrestle with the notion of being more than just another app creator.
