5 Useful Education Apps
For K-12 Students
Fun, Functional, and Free
1. Khan Academy
Just keeps growing...
Students in any grade can now use this app, as they have acquired more instructors to make videos for all subjects in all age groups. They began an interactive approach of providing extra practice with immediate results and feedback. It also provides an opportunity to jump ahead of the class or catch up with the class, and learn any time, any where, any way.
It is fun. It is definitely useful. And it's free.
Videos outside the classroom...
Likewise, students may have a certain interest in a subject that teachers do not have the time to explore. They can direct students to the videos they find informative and interesting.
Numbers, Shapes, and Colors
Some parents dedicate all their time to teaching their child, or buy television programs that they can sit their kids in front of, but most parents have to work or can't afford these expensive educational tools, so their kids start school with very minimal knowledge. Since all kids develop and learn at different paces, it will always be the case that some students need extra help or would like extra practice, and with these apps, they can do just that.
4. Vocabulary for GRE, SAT, ACT, GMAT....
And many more...
In the end, they may just memorize these words for a test, but I'm willing to bet that with this format, they'll remember these words for the rest of their lives and actually apply them in normal conversations.
