One of the things I have noticed with all the all new approach to schooling using Internet and app learning is that the new generation of learners have no understanding of information storage or how to learn. Using real books and the library is a natural way for students to learn how to find information accurately. This in turn empowers students to use Google more efficiently.
Saying this however I do love using the Internet and am here far more than I aught to be. I love to discover new helps. I have also been using YouTube clips to enhance our learning and best of all I enjoy finding anything FREE to enrich our home education experience.
I do have a Galaxy Tab which I really delight in using for Pinterest. I have used it for a few school apps. Here is a list of a few apps I've enjoyed and places I go to find apps if I'm looking.
The first school Apps we used and totally love are The Squeebles from Key Stage Fun. I love these apps because there are no in-game purchasing or web links making them safe for Sir N to use. They also have a good balance between work/play and a good stats area for me to monitor his progress. These apps are available for your iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.

I was looking for a spelling app to use with Sir N when my blog friend Princess Warrior Jo told us about Squeebles Spelling. I ♥ this app because I have total control. I created the lists and record the words verbally which means that it's my accent he is learning to hear.
I really like the look of Word Wizard for the iPad. This is a phonics based app that helps children with their spelling.
For Handwriting support I really liked using the Wet-Dry-Try app from Handwriting Without Tears. This app is available for your android and apple device.
I really love these apps and have five volumes on my phone. I hope this company makes these apps available for the Galaxy Tab and I really love the look of the updated app that's available for the apple market.
