As technology keeps being integrated into the classroom (in as early as Kindergarten), the focus has shifted to dual-use applications. Dual-use applications are those that can be used both in the classroom and at home. Apps like these open the door for parents to participate in the learning experience and provide assistance to their children outside of the classroom.

These apps also give students additional opportunities to fully grasp and understand the material while becoming more focused and involved in the classroom setting.

Check Out the Education Apps Below:
