With more educational apps being developed everyday, smartphones and tablets are on their way to replacing those clunky textbooks in the classroom.

“Bringing your phone to class used to be a one-way ticket to detention,” says Paul. “Fortunately, schools all across the country are easing up on their outside technology policies. Pew research says 73% of teachers now allow smartphones and tablets inside the classroom”.

Educational apps such as eduPad can help students both in and out of the classroom, while parents can use apps like Common Core to look up teaching standards for their local school district.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
