    Teaching in the Internet age means we must teach tomorrow’s skills today: Jennifer 

    With the continuous progression of education in today’s society, policymakers, teachers, and parents are finding innovative ways for children to learn, and get the best out of them by utilizing technology. The use of technology in schools has almost become fundamental. However, there are other choices offered outside the classroom, such as educational apps. 

    With educational apps, learning becomes diverse and flexible, catering to all ages and abilities. Scholars emphasize subject-oriented studies. Good education is no longer reserved for the wealthy; even average families can afford smartphones with educational apps. These cover various subjects like math, and language, and can be easily downloaded from app stores. Yet, selecting the best apps for skill monitoring and knowledge gathering remains a challenge.

This also reduces the amount of paper used.

Slide back a few years and mobile apps were a matter of concern for parents and teachers, but it’s not the case anymore. The use of mobile learning applications has grown immensely over the last few years. Apple App Store boasts of a whopping 65200 educational apps available for use by iPhone and iPad users, which makes up 8.47 percent of all apps. On Google Play Store, Education is the most popular category with around a quarter-a-million apps.

    Benefits of Mobile Apps in Education

    1. Remote Learning

    Kids need to learn and utilize available technologies and resources at their disposal. Learning away from traditional classrooms allows students to enhance their ability to use technology as apps, and it also assists them in progressing faster. The apps can be used at all times, so students can use them in their free time as well during the holidays. 

    2. Parent-Children-Teacher Communication 

    Mobile apps resolve parental disengagement by enhancing children’s interactivity and fostering better parent-child engagement. These facilitate collaborative learning, strengthening bonds and enabling active parental involvement. Amid busy schedules, parent-teacher communication apps bridge gaps, fostering ongoing discussions on children’s progress. This ensures transparency and effective addressing of parental concerns by teachers.

    3. Availability 24/7 

    Now, the classroom is portable. You can roam around anywhere and sit in comfortable positions while learning from mobile apps. There is no need to follow a tight schedule, it’s not time-bound and leads to a relaxed and easier form of learning. Children only need to pick up their phones and reach out to the apps whenever they feel like learning. 

    4. Entertainment 

    Studying is no longer passive and boring. Children no longer need to follow the monotonous routine of attending classes. Mobile apps provide entertaining illustrations and graphics, which have proved to enhance the interest of children in learning. Children also feel less stressed with no teachers regularly checking on them. They feel more relaxed while learning with mobile apps which leads to better learning. Various studies have shown that mobile educational apps combined with entertainment, instill more determination in children to learn and pass on to the next level. 

    5. Online Resources

    The power of digital platforms lies in their resources. The knowledge-seekers can absorb information from wealthy educational apps. The freedom to select the content you desire to read is available in various formats such as eBooks, PDFs, etc. Gone are the days when you had to go to libraries seeking books and carrying them around. Mobile apps provide enough space for you to store as much information as you want.

    11. Diversified and Interactive learning

    Mobile apps in education transform learning with dynamic experiences and diverse content. Incorporating interactive features like quizzes and simulations, they engage students actively, fostering deeper comprehension. Alongside, a wealth of multimedia resources such as videos and articles caters to diverse learning preferences. This variety ensures comprehensive access to engaging materials tailored to individual needs, enhancing understanding and engagement for learners of all backgrounds and abilities.

    Conclusion:

    An app, defined as a self-contained software package, enables users to execute specific tasks on mobile or desktop devices, often pre-installed or distributed through proprietary app stores like the Apple App Store and typically written in various programming languages.
