The other day 30hands Learning the company for the widely used iOS app (30hands Starter) has announced the discontinuation of their free version. As w/ most Ed Tech tools this is a necessity to help keep companies afloat and to continue to update their product w/ the most effective features.
More information on this and their transition to their paid iOS/web solution can be found here.
From their press release… “To help with the transition away from the free Starter version, we will be offering 30hands Pro at a discounted price of $4.99 through June 2017. Apple’s VPP for education still applies. Think of the value you get: for the cost of a single ice cream party for your class, they get fun learning for the whole year, which is like ice cream for the whole year!. For 30hands Web, we will extend the free trial period as needed for you to better evaluate it as you discuss site licenses with your schools.”
30hands is the excellent and easy-to-use learning tool that educators/students everywhere are using for a wide range purposes, such as: digital storytelling, project based learning, blended learning, and much much more.
I highly recommend checking out 30hands Pro by clicking here or 30hands Web here!!!
