This is a site aimed at teachers, parents and children looking for great educational apps! With many years experience teaching primary school children and coordinating ICT in schools we have scoured Apple’s app store, Google Play and lots of app-recommending websites and have tried out many apps in order to recommend what we consider the best educational apps available. So many other websites recommending apps don’t actually research or try them first. We do!
We aim to make finding suitable apps more straightforward and less time consuming. Filter by age – there are apps for preschool, early years and Key Stage 1 and 2. You can filter by subject. Alternatively, if you know what you’re looking for, see if we list it using the search box.
We teach full-time and only have limited time to try and test apps. If you are a primary school teacher and have apps which are proving successful, please let us know. Send a short review including the key strengths of the app and which children gain most benefit from it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We’ll then endeavour to include it on the site so others can benefit! Don’t forget to include your name and the school you work at so we know it is a genuine, unbiased review!
We also aim to share our experiences coordinating IT. Check out the blog we’ve recently added where we outline lots of decisions we make in our own schools and the lessons we learn as we go along!
