    Even before the COVID-19 pandemic a rise in distance learning had been observed. Currently, an increasing number of people are opting for online courses, and virtual classes have become a daily reality for many boys and girls.

    This technological evolution in education has resulted in parents becoming concerned about the quality of distance learning for children. If you are one of them, please continue reading to find out how to support your child’s education with the best educational applications.

    The advance in distance learning

    Since the year 2000, the number of boys and girls that study remotely has increased by 900% worldwide. This may seem incredible if we consider that just 20 years ago only 2.5% of the population had a mobile phone in their pockets.

    Times have changed and technology has advanced in quantum leaps. This is mainly due to the rise in digital children, those born with the Internet and who have had access to advanced technologies their whole life. These days, they are also revolutionizing their ways of learning.

    In Spain, the number of students that acquired their first digital product in 2020 increased by 144%. This new reality means a new challenge: implementing remote learning strategies that benefit children’s education.
