It is the that time of the year when school will be starting soon and I thought it would be good to suggest some teacher apps.- Teacher Kit and Teacher io App Review. As a former teacher I fully realize the amount of work that goes into setting up a classroom and preparing not only for the first day of school but also for the new school year. There is not enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done so I will make it easier and suggest some ways that technology can lessen your work load. Since there are so many different subject and age levels for curriculum for the is blog post I will be suggesting apps that help with general classroom organization.
Teacherkit- Classroom Organizer is one app that I think would be a great aid for back to school apps for teachers. As described in the Apple app store. it is a Swiss army knife with tools for classroom organization, behavioral monitoring, and grading.
Available in the following languages: English, Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portugese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Turkish
Since I am not presently teaching I can not rate this app but would be interested in your comments. Please tell me what you think about this app and ideas you might have to help teachers in the classroom through technology. This app is rated 4 stars in the App Store and I think it will be a great help to teachers.
Another teachers back to school app is Teacher io. With this app you can organize your classes and copy between sections and semesters. A syllabus can also be uploaded so your students and parents can stay informed about your curriculum. Resources with links can also be included so the student will have the information readily available. This information can be shared with students through the widely used myHomework apps. For students that do not have an tablet or iPad, there is a myHomework website where they can view the same info. Teachers can also connect with other teachers through a blog that is provided to share info and photos. This would be an excellent way to also connect with parents and post the results of classroom projects and events. On the Teachers io website you can view how other schools are using this app to their advantage.
This app is free and available in the Apple App Store AND the Android store
Apple rating of 4 stars
