From Educational Animation Apps to Augmented History Apps

 - Jul 15, 2015
When educational processes are gamified, outcomes are often far better and also come about quicker and with more enjoyment. After all, learning is best when it's fun.

These apps wholeheartedly embrace the gamification of education of all kinds -- some of these apps help very young children develop very basic language, communication and counting skills whilst others help grown-ups improve their knowledge in a specific area of interest. Kids with an aptitude for music can use apps that help encourage their musical leanings, while apps like Timetraveler help curious travelers learn about the history of famous sites that they visit.

What's great about these apps is that even though their educational aspect is gamified and made fun, the gains from it are not compromised on.
