You don’t have to be very technologically savvy to recognize that technology has grown tremendously in recent years and continues to grow substantially. Computers have moved from taking up an entire room to being tiny enough to fit in your pocket with memory large enough to store thousands of photos and videos and multiple gigabytes of data.
As smartphones have become commonplace throughout the nation, many individuals and organizations have latched on and developed thousands of applications for every type of person and activity. There are apps for games, social networks, photography, and nearly any other type that you can think of.
With the rise of apps and the internet, learning is beginning to be done more and more on smartphones. There are hundreds of great apps to help students study and learn a large variety of topics and skills – all through the phone!
