Apps for Teachers

Apps make learning not only easy, but fun too! We've found the best apps for the teachers and put them all in one convenient place. In the last few years, a wealth of apps has brought together ideas to help teachers have the greatest impact on student learning. The use of apps has encouraged greater sharing of resources among teachers.

Apps in the classroom brings education to life. Children have endless access to valuable information such as a dictionary and thesaurus, which previously were only available in printed format. Interactive technology makes learning more engaging and memorable. Tools such as audio and video recorders can change the way that learning takes place and homework is completed. Check our best apps for schools that can help teachers to engage with the students in the classroom.

From creating lesson plans and keeping attendance, to behavior records and communicating with students outside the classroom, these apps let teachers harness tech instead of fighting it. Knowing, it turns out, really is half the battle.
