Edshelf: An Educational App Directory for Teachers
May 15, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As Watters writes, "Edshelf hopes to become a go-to site where teachers can recommend to one another what’s worked for them, and it’s building a directory of educational materials that have been reviewed for educators by educators." In this Edshelf addresses the age-old problem attempted by learning objects, repositories, Dewey Decimal, and Good Housekeeping: how to find the good stuff in a sea of dross. Tapping into social networks is a good idea, but it trades the overabundance of anonymous recommendations for a dearth of recommendations from people you actually know.
