IPads and iPhones Empowering Education with The Help of Educational Apps

Technology today has occupied all  fields related to human activities. Technology has spread its roots to the field of education that it is the new life support system of students, teachers, as well as parents. The iPhones and Ipads which are a by product of technological progress are the major tools governing the field of education nowadays. These devices consist of numerous educational applications which make learning a fun experience for kids. These make learning better and more interactive for kids who in turn enjoy the process of getting educated. Not only this, the applications on these devices induce a sense of practicality in the students, as the lessons are full of audio and video clips which trigger the interest of children.

Some of the immensely popular educational applications for children are as follows:

Doodle Buddy

This is one of the very popular applications for children available from the iTunes store. This application is free of cost and can be easily played by a child who is at least 3 years old. This is an artistic application which facilitates the child to draw from his imagination, and fill it with numerous color options available. Moreover, this application also consists of various shapes, backgrounds as well as lines which a child can select from. The application also facilitates the user to invite other users and take snapshots with the help of a built-in camera. The photos from the camera can be colored and shaped with the help of this application which kids find really amusing.

Giraffe’s Matching Zoo

This application which is available from the iTunes store is meant for kids ages 3 and up. It’s free and is highly educational even for younger children. This application makes the child match animals on different cards in the grid with the same animal card present elsewhere on the same grid. This application facilitates easy identification of  animals which kids may otherwise find boring using traditional books. The animals in the cards are amazingly cuddly and attractive for the children to pique their interest. This application is a great learning experience for kids.

Paper Toss

This application, for the children ages 6 and up, is immensely popular not only among the kids but also the adults. Paper toss is an application which can be called sweat free techno basketball. It is a game in which the player has to toss a crumpled paper ball into a trash can. However, the barrier here are the strong winds which blow at various speeds in various directions at each throw. This clearly teaches the user about mathematical angles and skills. The player can choose from different environments and levels of difficulty. This game not only leads to a practical experience with mathematics but also develops spontaneity and sensitivity in the players.

These applications and a lot more others have paved the way for the empowerment of education among  kids. The use of iPhones and iPads is simply phenomenal because of their amazing apps and outstanding features.

If you are also an iPhone or an iPad user, then you should be aware of the fact that getting your gadget insured is as important as using it carefully.

You can look for other options online, but just make sure you are going with a reliable and a reputable company.

    I knew nothing about these apps! They sound great for kids. My kids are teens now. We still don’t have iPads or iPhones. I’m trying to limit the screens to computers, and not hand-helds, because my kids tend to waste a lot of time on them. Some of the activity, though, is very educational, so there’s always a balance to find. Great post!

  2. I love getting educational apps for my kids. Playing and learning at the same time isn’t such a bad thing.

  3. I had paper toss on my Iphone. I just traded in my Iphone yesterday for an android device. While browsing apps, I do know that the paper toss is available on the android platform as well.

    I think kids learn easier when learning is fun.

  4. Sounds like those are great educational and fun tools for young kids. One thing to watch out is the EMF exposure from using those devices, so using them with moderation is preferable.

  5. These are good apps but I can’t relate since I don’t have an iPhone or an iPad. The one apple gadget I got my daughter broke to pieces. I am not much of a fan of apple gadgets really they are very much well hyped and advertised. Androids like HTC and Samsung are really good very very good. They also hve lot of good apps . Thanks for sharing these apple apps :)

  6. didn’t knew about these apps,seems like great educational and fun tools for kids,nice share.

  7. I think there are a lot of apps that were designed for children. Quite similar to games, its probably the second most popular with plenty of choices. mobile devices have proliferated already and I now see a lot of kids with tablets as their educational toy. With the introduction of China-made devices, its becoming more affordable.

  8. I’ve seen Paper Toss though I haven’t tried downloading it. :)

  9. These apps sound great—don’t have any iXXX product so I cannot use them but I’ve got a few Moms I’ll be passing the info along too =)

  10. I am one of the few people on the planet without an iphone or smartphone. It’s my way of having a break. It seems like it’s such a reality for kids now to have these phones, so you might as well try to get their brains going more with them, huh;)
