There are thousands of educational apps to help children succeed in school. For kids, apps have to be fun. Many are designed like games.
Ann Adair, co-founder of Thinkamingo, helps design mobile apps for education. She said parents can help keep kids focused on education by letting them use educational apps that don’t need to be connected to the internet. Turning WiFi off on a tablet or smartphone can keep kids from venturing online and getting distracted.
Adair’s own app, “Lists for Writers” is great for English class. Other apps she believes will help kids include “Duolingo” for a foreign language, “Stack the States” for kids learning about the United States, “Wolframalpha” for complex subjects including math, physics, music, art, and astronomy.
