U.S. Presidents, an Android and Kindle app, is a flashcard-style quiz and learning tool. The information is rather US-Presidents-App-Logoshallow, dealing almost entirely with lower-order thinking skills such as identification and recall. If a teacher has as a learning objective that children memorize the presidents, then download and run with it. If, on the other hand, a teacher wishes to teach and practice higher-order thinking skills, conduct primary source document analysis, or otherwise construct lessons along the Common Core model, then this app is probably not for you.

Simple Uses?

As a sponge activity, this flashcard app will do. Also, if one wishes to brush up on their Trivia Crack skills, this app can be interesting to pass the time. Otherwise, I do not see many academic uses for this app.

Do I Plan To Use It?

No. Not with my US History students, nor my APUSH kids.

Commitment And Learning Curve

Low-Medium. It depends upon the purpose for which one uses the app. It is simple to download, but requires time to use.
