The Best Apps, Tech Tools and Websites for Freshmen


Going to school sure isn’t what it used to be. At one time, we went to school, came home, and did our homework. We had the odd activity, such as a sport or a club, but that was pretty much it. Today’s students seem to always be on the go, running from one activity to another. This can be tough on families with multiple kids, and things can get stressful for caregivers, be they parents or babysitters. Luckily, there are some really great apps you can use to help organize everything your kids to, and eliminate a lot of stress from your life. Here are some of the top picks:

    1. Boogie Board E-Writer – This is an LCD tablet that can be used as a whiteboard. Kids can write, doodle, and more, then clear everything and start all over again. Kids can use it for practicing math and spelling, or for keeping busy on long car rides. These range from $29.99 to $99.99 in price, depending on the model.


  • Life360 Family Locator – Now you can know where your kids are at all times. Simply download the app, and register your kids’ mobile phone numbers. You can see where they are on a map at any time. They can also download the app so they can notify you about where they are.

  • Artkive – Store all of your kids’ art projects. Simply take photos of the work, note the kid who made it, app tabs, and more. This way, you have a permanent record of everything your kids create, and you will finally be able to see your fridge door again.
  • VolunteerSpot – If you are a parent that is active in your kids’ lives, you may be involved with one of the teams as a volunteer coach, or maybe you help each year at the carnival. You can use this app to coordinate all of the after-school activities you are involved in. Not only can you schedule times, you can also make lists of the things you need for the activities, invite other parents to take part, and more.
