Awesome Apps For Education

IOS Apps from the Apple Store

The following are apps the teachers can use with their students. There is a quiz description and a little on how i would use the app with my students.

Remind

Teachers, coaches, or administrators can send reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students' and parents' phones. Interactions are safe because phone numbers are kept private.

How would I use it? I would use it to remind students and parents of events and deadlines within the course.

Poll Everywhere

What Is It? As your audience submits their answers, they appear live on your slide. Graphs change in size and scale. Open ended answers are there for everyone to see, or moderated as you choose.

How would I use it? I would use it to gauge how many student know the anwser and how many don't its also great to through in a poll to keep students engaged when teaching some course content.

Socrative

Always There

What Is It? The app provides a password protected space for students to log their feelings, flip through a ton of youth-submitted tips, inspirational quotes, and jokes aimed at helping you cope with stress. students can also access “tipsheets” offline on a variety of emotional health topics and more. Finally, the app can also connect students directly with a Kids Help Phone counsellor over the phone, or through Live Chat
