Then you won't want to miss the final installment of our debut video interview series -- TEACHERS IN THE VANGUARD -- with Jayne Clare and Anne Rachel, Co-Founders of Teachers With Apps.

This two gutsy gals took a risk and made it work. Find out how.

In Part I of the series, we learn how these two Teachers in the Vanguard moved quickly from pioneer app developers to creators of an app resource and discovery site that benefits a community of educators, parents and other care-givers now 50,000 strong.

In Part 2, we discover the criteria and considerations Anne and Jayne use when evaluating the apps they choose to recommend on the TWA site.

In Part 3, the two offer us insights, direct from the front lines, on the ever-evolving app industry, and the respect they share for developers of educational products.

And in Part 4, we find out how Jayne and Anne have come to honor both worthy products and the people and organizations behind them: those developers who seem never fail at keeping children and learning at the forefront of their efforts.

Then, in Part 5, Jayne introduces us to Jayne Clare Consulting (JCC) and sets us up for Anne's latest news, to be revealed in our final episode to follow.

Reflections on the Infant (and Growth) Educational App Industry: Interview with Anne Rachel & Jayne Clare, Co-Founders of Teachers With Apps, Part 3

As described in Part I and Part 2 of the debut series of TEACHERS IN THE VANGUARD, Jayne Clare and Anne Rachel have been on the cutting edge of the app industry from its inception.

"We knew from the very beginning that this was the future. There was no doubt in our minds that this was the way children were going to be learning. We wanted to be on the cutting edge. We wanted to be where everything was happening and maybe a few steps ahead," Jayne states in a video interview conducted expressly for this blog.

From app developers, the two quickly evolved. They remained at the forefront of an infant industry, becoming Co-Founders of Teachers With Apps, a resource and app discovery website for educators and care-givers.

"We really were in just the right place at the right time," says Anne Rachel, "which was just sheer luck, in so far as having an impact."

Find out all about what they have learned on the front lines of an industry undergoing tremendous growth and change. View the video interview above.
