    "Technology is changing the way we teach and learn at a rapid speed. So, how can teachers make learning more interactive and more fun with technology?

But, when teachers need to help students in small groups or one-on-one, how can they make sure that other students are actively practicing subject-area skills?

With these apps, students can individually learn, practice, study, and have fun with different subjects and concepts. Luckily, there are many good, quality apps for students of all ages. It is important to note that this list is separated into categories, and the apps in each category are not in rank ordered. Here are 116 of the best teaching and learning apps for 2017."

    But a bucket with a leaky hole. Our brains are designed to be flytraps for new information and knowledge, but evolution put in a deliberate "flaw". It's easy to learn new things. But it is just as difficult to remember and hold on to new knowledge without effort."
