Educational Apps for Kids
I don't know about you, but every time I turn around, my iPad is filled with new apps that I didn't download. The latest one to show up was the Hershey's chocolate milk app where you squeeze a bottle into a glass of milk and then tap a straw to slurp out the contents. While there's not much educational value of seeing a virtual glass of chocolate milk disappear on the screen, I was happy to find out this morning about some important apps for kids that'll actually help them with their school work.
Following the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference, McGraw-Hill Education announced that its lowering the price on its Everyday Math apps to give teachers and parents the opportunity to download them and offer feedback.
The Everyday Math apps offer K-6 students a quick and easy way to practice and reinforce different concepts in mathematics. The apps, which are available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod, will be free from April 13-17. You can download all of McGraw-Hill Education's apps here.
One of the apps - Baseball Multiplication Facts (1-6) - was recently featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the App store.
