    Apps for education can make children more interactive, more engaged and perform better. Keeping teaching methods fresh is integral to getting students engaged in their studies and learning apps are a fantastic way of achieving this. Apps are designed with primary input from educators and curriculum developers, or shown in educational research to be an effective learning tool. The apps we cover in this guide are great learning apps not because they’re designed to make kids smarter, to drill facts, or to replace in-school learning, but because they’re fun and interesting for kids and adults. 

    Duolingo : A language app that makes learning fun and research shows that it works!
