The best reading apps for the classroom
16 August 2013Add to My Folder
Reading on a tablet has taken off in the UK in a very big way. Whether it is reading the latest novel, practising phonics or learning a new language, there is an app that fits most aspects of school life. Many are free and those that require purchasing are generally priced below a pound.
This article considers the main reading apps, ways to encourage children to read, flash card phonics and using tablets for reading with children who have autism.
Amazon’s Kindle, in all its different guises, is one of the most popular reading devices around. You just have to step on to any train and you’ll see one. It’s also a device that refuses to be pushed into the shade by tablets. There’s a good reason for that: the Kindle is affordable, it’s easy to use and the content that Amazon offers is often competitively priced against other online retailers, and almost always beats the print pricing.
However, you don’t have to buy the hardware to benefit from Amazon’s pricing on Kindle books as you can access them through any smartphone or tablet including any of Apple’s products.
