Great Educational Apps for School Students in 2014

Nowadays students who don’t have tablets or smartphones seem to be the exception, rather than the rule. It seems everyone has a device of one kind or another and this is partially owing to the constantly lowered price of these tablets.

One good thing that’s come out of this is the sheer array of great apps that children can easily and quickly access to help with their education. So, we thought we’d compile some of the best for children looking to get ahead in the classroom.

Prezi Viewer

Looking to present a presentation in class or too your contemporaries then this is a great app. With a whole host of great multi touch gestures for dragging, panning and zooming – it’s great for showcasing ideas and projects.


Do you have to come up with a new essay or project and don’t know what to do. Well, Popplet is a great idea and allows you to create a very visual mind map of your ideas. It allows you to collaborate with others in real time too, great for group projects and a firm favourite for group work.

Free Graphing Calculator

This great flexible graphing calculator is better than many of the paid alternatives out there and also is completely free. It comes with all the scientific and graphing capabilities you would expect a calculator like this too and is perfect for A Level math without doubt.

Interactive Science Glossary

This tool offers a whole host of information on specific science terms and concepts and presents them in a manner that appeals to a variety of different sorts of learning styles. There are videos, flashcards, content and simulations galore – it’s a great option for any science subject.


This tech uses iBeacon technology to provide students with a host of learning options within proximity when a student sits down in a library or school setting. The notifications go to the phone and it can be a great way to delve deeper into learning – something many need to do to reach those higher grades.


An innovative online platform that allows children to enjoy the benefits of an online tutor in their homes – it’s pretty great. There’s no app yet, though the site is fully functional via tablet, meaning students can benefit with a full time tutor, whiteboard and classroom setting over the web anywhere.


This ereading platform constantly updates specific ebooks in its library and stays current with auto updates and community participation – something a little similar to Wikipedia in a way.

Olly Safe Browser

Perfect for families and schools looking to ensure that the children using the tablets are safe and that there is a suitable level of blocking of content for their age. It’s been highly featured and received plenty of good reviews.

These are just some of the great apps out there for children using iPads and iPhones this year and are more than worthwhile taking a look at.
