Kids these days spend much more time on screens than ever before, but that doesn’t necessarily need to be a bad thing.

Today, there are plenty of apps on the market that are both educational and fun—plus, you might just learn a thing or two yourself by playing them together. We've shortlisted five education apps below to kickstart the learning:
