Education: The Power of Apps

Onebillion, a nonprofit organization which focuses in education has created an app that educates its user in math, English, and reading. Researchers at Nottingham University conducted a study which showed that “One week of working on the iPads for 30 minutes a day equaled three months of formal education” according to Dr. Nikki Pitchford. Apps like this can be extremely useful for countries like Malawi, in which half the population is composed of children. In countries like this, 90 student classrooms are common and it is difficult for a teacher to give enough attention to each child. However, this app is a huge step forward for education in developing countries.
