Since 1993, Children’s Technology Review has been de-mystifying technology for parents, teachers and children’s librarians by way of timely, objective, rubric-driven reviews. We put the child ahead of the technology, and when looking at products, we ask ourselves: “What does the child walk away from the experience with that they didn’t have when the first came to the experience?” Missing are ads, sponsors or social agendas, and we don’t share subscriber information. Our goal is simple — to provide objective reviews of children’s interactive media products.
We’ve slowly been improving with time, and we invite you to preview our latest features. Subscribers now get three parts:
|1) Three Noteworthy Apps each week
Delivered every Wednesday Morning, CTR Weekly is a fast roundup of three top rated children’s apps, within hours of their release. One glance summarizes the strengths and weaknesses, and tells you what you need to know. Also included are ratings, quick facts, and a link to a video review. Delivery is each Wednesday at 8:30 AM EST (USA).
|2) 12,000+ reviews at your fingertips
Need to do some research, and need a list of math apps for first graders? You’ll receive an instant access password with your subscription receipt, allowing you to log in to our Online Review Database, which includes back issues and over 12,000 product reviews dating back to 1985. The database makes it easy to search by curriculum area, platform, rating and grade. So you can zoom in on just the products you’re looking for. Want the Top 100 iPad products for reading? You’re just a few clicks away.
|3) Children’s Technology Review each month.
Delivered electronically (via PDF) the first week of each month, each 25+ page issue of CTR addresses current trends, research, and news and includes 40+ reviews of both “dust” and “magic” products. The publication is easy to print or forward. It includes LittleClickers — a one page handout with 5 sites and 10 videos about a current high-interest topic. Here’s a sample issue.
We do not use instant renewals. You will be sent a renewal notice prior to the expiration of your subscription.
What do you get for free?
While most of CTR’s content is reserved for paid subscribers, we post review excerpts and link to our video reviews on YouTube, which are monetized by Google Ads. We also post a monthly letter (found on page 2 of each issue) that summarizes the latest news and research on children’s interactive media. Each picks up on the theme of the cover, and previews the Editor’s Choice selections (the highest rated products) of the month.
