Parental Support – Apps

OFF

As children get more and more comfortable with modern technology and learn to use touch screens from a very early age, tablet computing is playing a more important role in education. There are some fantastic apps on the market across Android, Apple and other platforms.

Below is a list of some apps used to aid children’s learning. Most of them are free and some are available for a (usually very reasonable) cost. There may be some apps that are unavailable on certain platform (eg iPhone, not iPad).

HELP! IF YOU KNOW OF A FANTASTIC APP IN ANY SUBJECT, PLEASE LET THE SCHOOL OFFICE KNOW AND WE CAN LOOK INTO GETTING THEM IN SCHOOL.
