Hello everyone!Fall term is finished.School is on semester holiday. My husband created some time for me and we went snowboarding. (I thank to him by the way 🙂 ) And I’ve just found time to post. Here it is my new post;
As all of us know, technology is all around our lives.Since we had the smart phones, we have engaged in internet and apps. We all use apps, don’t we? Pinterest (the best assistant of a teacher), instagram,facebook,whatsapp,ibooks,etc. But, do you use apps for teachers? Yes? No? Take a look my post, and you can have some other ideas, if you use already.Let’s discover!
I have written Duolingo first, because it is one of my favorites. As we say always, teachers keep learning. Yes you learn the second language. Why not third? Or even fourth? I used to learn Dutch by Duolingo. ( still continue). The app makes you feel like it is a game not a lesson. By giving 5 mins everyday you can learn some. You can even advice it to your students. I’m sure that they’re gonna like it.
If the benefits of a bilingual brain motivate your students, try this app. “Duolingo revolutionized the way people learn languages,” says TED-Ed community member Dhruv G. Menon.
Every student likes games. If you won’t have any problem about that student use phones in class, you can think Kahoot for an enjoyable class.All you have to do is enter your prepared questions and answers into the site to create an instantly playable game with a web browser. Your students can then download the Kahoot app to use as a buzzer to join in on the fun.
Remind is based in San Francisco,CA and is used by more than 35 million people in 3 out of 4 U.S. school districts. You can make class announcements, group chats, or contact individuals privately through the app.
ClassDojo isn’t your typical classroom-management platform. Whereas others concern themselves with gold stars and charts, this app lets teachers emphasize positive feedback, allowing you to elaborate on the behavior of your students with comments such as “working hard” or “participating.” You can even send parents public and private messages regarding their child’s progress, and if they desire to do so, they can view their child’s feedback in real-time. No school newsletter required.
Flashcards are a time-tested method of study, but they can be easy to loose track of given their size and durability. With Studyblue, teachers can create digital sets of flashcards, study guides, and quizzes, each complete with optional audio and video. Moreover, students can create and share their own sets of flashcards and study tools, giving them a convenient place to start studying outside of simple lectures and text books. For $8 a month per semester, students have access to more study materials with StudyBlue PRO.
