What is the Learning Apps Seal of Approval?

The Learning Apps Seal of Approval (Gütesiegel Lern-Apps in German) is a prestigious certification awarded by the Austrian Ministry of Education. This certification is granted to digital learning applications that meet rigorous standards of quality, pedagogical value, and usability.

Kialo Edu has earned the Learning Apps Seal of Approval by fulfilling the stringent criteria established by the Ministry. The evaluation process involves a thorough review by teachers, who assess the app based on a wide variety of criteria, such as content accuracy, user interface, and the overall impact on the learning process.

Here is just a small selection of feedback from teachers involved in evaluating Kialo Edu: 

“It’s a good opportunity to actively involve students who are too reserved in oral discussions.”

“The app offers a good opportunity for argumentation, and illustrating this digitally is of great interest, especially for young people today.”

“Above all, critical thinking is demanded from students and promoted with this app!”
