About Common Sense Education's Ed Tech Learning Ratings and Reviews
From the Common Sense Education website:
We are dedicated to offering independent, unbiased ratings.
Our team of experts and reviewers include leaders in edtech, scholars in child development and learning, instructional designers, K–12 subject-area experts, and school technology leaders. Our ratings are not influenced by developers or funders, and we never receive payments or other compensation for reviewing any tools. We're also committed to offering our reviews free to educators.
We have a rigorous review process.
Our editorial reviews are based on a research-backed rubric developed specifically to evaluate the learning potential of digital tools. Our rubric evaluates three key qualities essential to great digital learning experiences: engagement, pedagogy, and support, including (but not limited to) how engrossing the tool is to use, whether it promotes conceptual understanding and creativity, how it adapts to students' individual needs, and how well it supports knowledge transfer.
