PLEARN (PLay to Learn to PLan) with TEXTING Type APPs
Celly is a great app that can be used for educational purposes and in the class environment. With the help of Celly, classrooms can take quizzes, get news/updates, take notes, and organize study groups. It also enables students to share their thoughts with their peers or teachers regarding the class topics.
ClassPager is the only web site designed specifically for teachers to text or poll message back and forth with students and parents. It's safe, free, and easy. No one ever sees anyone else's phone number!
This is a great app that allows teachers to send their parents or students one-way messages and/or emails without sharing phone numbers. If the parents need informing about their child’s behavior, the teacher can just pop an email with confidence. Then there’s the best part: it’s free for teachers!
- Study Boost
Why not boost studying with study boost?! This app allows students to study through sms-based quizzes. Teachers can make multiple choice or open-ended questions and take quizzes using the instant messaging service.
- Poll Everywhere
Need a poll in the class? Use Poll everywhere to give your students questions which they will be able to respond to using their mobile phones, twitter, or web browsers. The app will quickly calculate the results and compile it into a PowerPoint presentation right away.
- YOUR CHOICE
If you come across or know of another texting apps that are great for student learning and personalization. PLEARN away!
