Free Educational Apps

I just came across this list of links for free educational apps with corresponding grade levels.  With technology playing such a key role in the lives of our students, it is imperative that we bring fun technology into our classrooms as well.  This list gives sites/ apps that we can use to motivate and engage our students in their own learning while keeping us in line with the digital natives that we teach.
I have used a few of these apps but the majority of them are new to me so I thought I would share and get the word out about them.  The fact that they are all free allows us to download them and explore before introducing them to students, without any expense out of our pockets.
Enjoy and let me know what you think, if you try these apps.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I've been researching free apps since my day programs for adults with disabilities received grants for ipads, as many schools are. This is a great comprehensive lost.
    I've used GoogleEarth and Evernote. There's so much you cab do with GoogleEarth, especially since my program focuses on community based learning. Evernote is a tool for organization. I think it's a little complicated, even for the upper grades, but could be used as a group or teacher tool.

  2. Glad this is helpful for you and thanks for adding your experience!
