Summer could be the time to take a look at some apps you just needed time to explore. Here at top picks from staff writers at eSchool News in an April 26, 2013 article: Last year we presented “New: 10 of the best Apple apps for education in 2012” which highlighted some of the best apps for iPhones and iPods. However, with new upgrades in touch technology, and the emphasis on Common Core State Standards and school reform in general, we’ve come up with a new list of the best Apple- and Android-based education apps for 2013.
This year’s list includes some of the most highly rated apps, both by educators and by parents and features a range that spans from interactive iBooks to current images of the universe, and from free video software to award-winning STEM curricula. Each entry includes a brief description of each with features and benefits, compatibility, etc.
This is just a brief sample of this year’s listing:
- Animoto – turns photos into professional quality videos
- HMH FUSE Algebra 1 – Common core math edition gives students a personalized learning experience.
- Oxford Picture Dictionary, Second Edition — A great vocabulary solution
- PBS Parents Play & Learn HD — PBS’ first app designed specifically for parents, PBS Parents Play & Learn provides more than a dozen games parents can play with their kids, each themed around a familiar location–including at the grocery store, at home, in the kitchen, and more.
