Awesome Educational Apps for Your Homeschool | @iHomeschoolNet | #ihsnet

While learning can, and often still does, look like a student sitting and learning during a set time, in a set space, and doing a set activity such as reading and writing, learning can also look quite different from the traditional model of education. In fact, one of the main reasons why families choose to home educate is so that learning does look different.

As technology continues to grow as a primary resource for education we as homeschoolers must stay current with the changing face of education.

One of the best and easiest ways that we can do that is to incorporate educational apps into our homeschooling lives.

Sometimes, homeschooling can seem impossible when life matters get in the way of school matters. Driving all over town for various activities can wreak havoc on the lesson plans. With educational apps, you can utilize digital study resources in fun, kid-friendly ways to fill in gaps, save time, or enhance learning. What’s even better, the kids will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize that they are learning.
