This week Education Next published “Learning in the Digital Age: Better Apps are Coming,” an article by Marie Bjerede about the state of educational apps today — which kinds of apps are actually useful, which are fun, and what kinds of new and improved learning apps we should expect to see in the future. Marie is founder of e-Mergents, LLC, which advises schools, start-ups, and technology leaders on enabling and scaling teaching with technology.
We also published this week, on our blog, “Digital Learning via Puzzles, Games and Simulations,” also by Marie, about less structured kinds of digital learning for kids.
We’re taking this opportunity to put together a list of some favorite educational apps recommended by people who are tech experts, policy wonks, parents, or all three. Feel free to suggest apps in the comments section below.
