Apps for Education

Below is a short list of some apps that students and teachers may be able to use to study, research information, or connect to classroom content.  There are hundreds of apps out there for education, but most of these are free – so if students have smartphones, they could easily download these – and most work on iPads too.  They are categorized by subject for high school social studies.  Hopefully they’ll help a bit – plus with the new Greece Central technology policy, students and teachers could use some of these in class, for review, or for enrichment opportunities when students finish work early.
