25 Helpful Apps for Students

From Classroom Chat Apps to Social Productivity Apps

— March 2, 2015 — Tech
While smartphones are often called distractions, these apps for students show how technology can be used to enhance a student's learning rather than hinder it.

Since communication in the classroom no longer happens as it did a decade ago, apps like ClassDojo, Class Chat and Be Here are used to facilitate grading, attendance-taking, feedback, remote learning, as well as connecting a student with educators and peers for better comprehension. Pocket Points is one app that should help to keep everyone in the classroom happy—the more a student is able to stay off their phone in class, the app provides special deals and discounts to local businesses so that it really does pay off to stay alert in class. Other apps like these that blend fun challenges with learning prove that apps for students can be powerful educational tools.
