Best online learning apps and resources for kids

Today you can leverage technology to help your children or students learn new things in a fun, engaging, and highly effective manner. The fast-paced and easy-to-use technology has made it pretty easy for today’s children to adapt to technological innovations. We all have seen toddlers and adolescents having a knack for smartphones and tablets, and it’s understandable why parents despise the idea of too much screen time at this age.

Screen time is inevitable. The good news is you can put that screen time to good use either through online learning classes or useful educational apps. Here are some of the apps and resources you can introduce your kid to apart from their school learning app:

1. Ted [email protected]

2. YouTube Kids

YouTube Kids allows parents to create a separate profile for each kid in their household. Each profile has a separate set of viewing preferences and recommendations, allowing multiple kids to get the best student learning growth from the YouTube Kids app. If you wonder what does YouTube consider as the age of kid, then it is 13. The typical videos available on this app include shows that have clips and full episodes of popular children’s programs, music clips that include classic and contemporary kids’ songs. The learning section provides access to online learning classes from sources including Khan Academy, PBS Kids, and TED-Ed. The explore section features a wide range of user-created content, toy-related videos (including many unboxing videos), and a vast array of kid-friendly content.

3. Khan Academy kids

Khan Academy Kids is a free, fun, and educational program designed for young children to get them interested in learning.
