It's halfway through the school year! Whether your high school student is learning in the classroom, at home, or a hybrid of the two, there are several great Android apps that are designed to give your child the support they need to succeed. We chatted with a few teachers, school administrators, and fellow parents to find the most helpful apps that work on both Android cell phones and tablets. Here is a quick rundown of the best.

Our final thoughts

Evernote is a popular planner and note-taking app among students, teachers, and professionals. It helps students keep track of what is due, class schedules, and grades. You can save scanned handouts, images, and files in a virtual filing cabinet to access later. These can be annotated through the app and saved. The calendar includes alarms to remind students to move on to the next class or assignment, remember virtual classroom meetups, and when assignments should be submitted.

Kahoot! is another great learning tool to help students study for tests or memorize important facts. This app has millions of premade flashcards, learning games, and quizzes covering different subjects. But you can also make your own, complete with images and audio. It has timers and allows missed questions to be reviewed before either retaking a quiz or moving on. There is a real-time learning feature that so multiple students can connect and learn together at the same time, making Kahoot! a great tool for study groups, even virtual ones.

If your child's school uses Canvas to access and submit assignments, it's helpful to have this app downloaded to your child's phone or tablet. There is a parent app, too, that lets you keep track of your child's grades and assignments yourself to ensure everything is being submitted on time and that your child is actually logging in for participation points.
