Best Educational Apps for Primary Student

The quote by Nelson Mandela – “Education Is the Most Powerful Weapon Which You Can Use to Change the World” is proved in its truest form. In this generation where Technology is substituting manual jobs why the educational system will still stick to the traditional system. 

This question has struck the minds of many people a few years back. But you know that we can’t do anything because the magic hides in the technology. Mobile App Development Company aimed to bring the change and the result is enjoying by the world. 

E-learning facilitates the education app design by coupling them with excellent and interesting features. It is expected that the market of e-learning facilities will surpass $243 billion by 2022. A survey unveils that 92% of this generation of students prefer educational apps to pursue their educational courses. 

It was 2015 when the students found their new interest in learning with the help of smart devices and educational apps. Though it is widely preferred by high-grades students,  some apps have been also crafted for the primary students too.

The perspective for designing these two categories of education app is quite different from one another. At first, when the high-grade educational app has been developed in 2015 students were astounded by its features and ability to perform. Only 56% of students chose online education system that year. Got stunned by the number, umm!

There is a big reason for the wide popularity of educational mobile apps. Students choose the educational app to gather a huge amount of information on a particular topic within a few minutes. They can save it to the device for its further utility and most importantly it saves time for preparing lessons.

Moon Phase AR

If we recall the time period of 2000-2010, you all know the value of pen and paper at that time. On the Geography book, there was a chapter named Solar System, which detailed about the stars, planets, moon and other celestial bodies, right? There used to be a picture too which we had to draw several times in the examinations of different grades. The picture was about the Universe.

 It represents the Sun and the position of other important planets with their orbits. Most of the time we get confused about how the planets rotate and revolve around the Sun, Moon Phase AR exactly deals with it. At that time, we take a long time to understand it clearly because of the 2D image in our books. But this app offers the image in the 3D form, which helps the students to understand accurately and clearly.

Hope, now all of you have understood the benefits of mobile apps in education.
