12 Of The Best Vocabulary Apps For Middle & High School Students

by TeachThought Staff

Many of the most successful apps–in any category–are characterized by their ability to adapt to a variety of user and user goals.

Minecraft is a perfect example of this–a game that the player can use as they wish to create what they want. It can be played by users of a huge range of ages and ability levels. Other apps like YouTube, Google Music, Duolingo, and others can be used flexibly by children, teens, or adults as well.

But due to the inherent nature of language, vocabulary apps are different. Vocabulary apps are highly dependent on age and grade level for most users, and while a 7th grade student could like benefit from a 5th grade or 9th grade app, “levels” tend to matter more.

With that in mind is a list of 12 of the best vocabulary apps for middle and high school students. They are a mix of level and adaptive apps, and vocab apps for standardized testing practice. We’ve featured the ‘Knowji’ series of apps in the past, and in this list among others you’ll see their “academic word” app which with words selected because they often appear “with greater frequency in a broad range of academic texts.”

Also included are apps that, like Knowji’s offerings, depend highly on visual representation of ideas. Which reminds us–why hasn’t someone done a Frayer Model app yet?
