What’s
appening
Let’s face it. Apps are now an integral part of our everyday lives. We use
them to check the weather and check into a flight, to see when the next
bus is coming, record notes, read books, play games and much more.
A great outcome of the app revolution is the transformative learning
that apps can help foster. There are thousands of education apps in the
Windows Store from early learning “games” to study aids and even apps
that will help you manage the classroom— with more being published
every day.
To get you started, we’ve curated a list of 100 education apps that we
hope you’ll find helpful. For even more, visit:
