  1. simplicity and rote learning is also important in the classroom , check out the following android app

  2. Kids love using technology as a break from textbooks. Particularly for mundane tasks like rote learning. Here’s a great educational app for learning GCSE French vocabulary on the Apple App Store:
    Also available for Android devices from Google:
    There are other languages available also.

  3. I recommend this Timeline Eons app, a graphic representation of the entire natural and human history:

  4. Don’t you miss out Apparatus? I believe its exactly what Seymore Papert means by Constructionism. Basically its a mechanical sanbox game to teach kids about physics, mechanics and machines.

  5. Pocket Tutor has mobile educational apps on various platforms. Children can also play online from a web browser –

  6. Have you tried AURALBOOK? I’m a music teacher and it’s my favorite app to use with my students. They love how fun it is and I love how much it improves their listening skills. They can practice at home but have the same attention and feedback that I would give them through AURALBOOK. The interface is really easy to use and it’s free!
