Teachers are always on the hunt for the next best tool that will make it more efficient, easier, and better for them to convey concepts and ideas with students. Check out this year’s top app list for sparking curiosity amongst students, literacy skills, and so much more.
This is a collaborating app which works wonders. As a teacher, you can use this to assign group projects. This particular app works in a variety of settings. It is as easy as using a Facebook group except here, you can also incorporate Google Hangouts and Google Docs.
This app is everything that the name suggests. It is, technically, an interactive whiteboard that connects with all the students. It may also be the most versatile app that you use when teaching. It makes use of the presentations and mic in your device and lets you animate, annotate, and narrate everything. The best thing about the app is that it works well in collaboration with other apps that you may have used, like Evernote, Google Drive, Dropbox, and YouTube. If you have anything you want to import to these apps, Explain Everything won’t give you trouble.
The Class Dojo app helps in a lot of ways to not only engage students, but also keep their parents in the loop. It is more of a classroom management tool and motivates students to do their best in class through a virtual reward system where everyone earns points.
Students can learn great computer science fundamentals through this app. Their interface and design is exceptional. However, a step further for serious students who want to learn more in this niche would be the app named Scratch, which teaches core coding concepts.
This is the app that will be appreciated by every teacher. The reason behind this is because it allows you to completely forego the task of giving handouts. Students, on the other hand, don’t misplace their notes either. Teachers can also make a notebook through this app for assignments which will be shared with every student. The best part about this is that paper is not wasted and can serve as a sort of a ‘Green way of learning’, where the students don’t trash their handouts at the end of the year.
Moodle is an open source platform. It comes with a questionnaire platform where students complete tasks and anonymously give feedback on their online learning experience.
This app fully embraces the transition between the digital reading world and the traditional book reading practice. Through the app, teachers can layer web links, embed videos, and make notes for quizzes and assignments. This is a very interactive and simple-to-use app that improves your writing and thinking skills. It also assesses the progress of a student within the Common Core State Standards.
