COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — With technology use on the rise, even in younger children, there are some phone and tablet apps that could help you and your children gear up for this school year.

If your child is 6 to 10 years old, they, and you, might benefit from these apps: School A to Z, TeamPlayer, and Life 360 Family Locator.

School A to Z is an app featuring all subjects, and can help your child get back in the learning mode after summer break.

If your child is into sports, the TeamPlayer app can help you organize their busy practice and game schedules, and keep contacts for other player’s parents.

Life 360 Family Locator can track your child’s cell phone, even when they are on the school bus. You can watch their location on a live map, and it also has a panic button.

If your child is 11 to 18 years old, and even into college, they could benefit from Evernote, Quizlet, iHomework, and EasyBib.

Evernote offers a quick way to manage you and your child’s growing to-do list, and also acts as a great note-taking tool in the classroom.

Quizlet eliminates those cumbersome notecards and lets your child make their own virtual flashcards for study sessions.

iHomework makes for a great assignment organizer with alerts and different ways to prioritize school work.

Lastly, when writing a paper, EasyBib makes bibliographies easier with automated citations.
