UNICEF Kid Power is already looking ahead to the upcoming school year, with tons of back to school resources! Below we’ve listed a handful of very useful school and homework related apps that your kid can definitely benefit from:
Does your kid need some assistance with managing all of their homework assignments? The iHomework app will help your kid organize all of their incoming homework assignments in a tidy app. It will allow your kid to track each assignment, and access them and their progress for each homework assignment right away! Check out the iOS app here.
Penultimate Note-taking App
If your kid owns a tablet, this is the app to use! The Penultimate homework app acts as a digital notepad, which lets your kid write and take notes to their heart’s content with this sleek and easy to use digital handwriting pad. Now you never have to worry about having enough paper in your notebook, or ink in your pen. Penultimate is the ultimate digital note-taking app. Check out the iOS app here.
Here Comes The Bus
What good is a classroom if your kid doesn’t make it to class on time? This clever app lets you connect an app to the GPS coordinates of the morning bus. You can track the location of the bus and be right on time for when the bus arrives at your home. And if the bus stop is away from home, parents can also use the app to track whether their kid made it onto the bus on time! Please note that this app requires coordination with each local school district. Check out the iOS app here.
StudyBlue: Online Flashcards and Study Guide App
StudyBlue will make studying for tests a lot more fun for your kid! Instead of writing standard notes, StudyBlue allows your kid to create awesome and interactive flash cards! Additional features touted by the StudyBlue app include: customizing study materials with images and audio, creating personal quizzes on the material, study alarms and reminders, and integration between desktop, tablet, and mobile apps.

Quizlet: Study Flashcards, Languages & Vocabulary
Quizlet makes studying fun again with easy-to-create digital flashcards. However, what sets Quizlet apart from other flashcard apps is that it lets you access other flashcards made by other users on many subjects. This can save you time and give you a pinch of creativity by viewing someone else’s flashcards. Check out the iOS app here, and the Android app here.
