Why Apps?

New touchscreen and mobile devices offer an opportunity to connect with children in a new way educationally. The interactivity of these devices provide a unique way to encourage and motivate a multitude of learners. Though the app market is dominated by Apple, the Android store is growing rapidly. As the educational (and worldwide) trend moves towards personalized and mobile learning, finding the right apps for kids becomes an important task. CBS This Morning recently quoted a new study that said that apps are second only to e-mail and texting in terms of what we use phones for. Let's take advantage of the popularity!
