Apps that have been recommended by teachers for teachers

If you are a teacher who’s looking for some apps that will interest you and your students, read on... Here are five apps that are recommended by TED-ed, that every teacher can use to make the classes more creative and interesting.

  1. Draw and Tell

The app increases the creative confidence in kids of all ages. One has to draw something, tell a story about it and share their creation. For TED-Ed community member Ginnie Harvin Pitler, this app is a classroom favourite. “I’m an elementary teacher and believe in creation apps over consumption apps,” she says.

  1. Oxford Dictionaries

A good dictionary is the requirement in every classroom. For TED-Ed community member Nuria Carballal, Oxford Dictionary works well. Meanwhile, TED-Ed community member Chie Sipin Bjarenas recommends Dictionary.com. “It’s a quick way to answer ‘what does [insert unfamiliar word] mean?’” she says.

  1. Educreations

The app creates videos for learning. “it is a great tool for explaining math strategies with voice, pen and screen recorder,” says TED-Ed community member Melissa Julian. ”It also lets students make learning resources for other children to use.”

  1. Edmodo

Every teacher looks for a way to exchange feedback. This app helps in providing clear feedback and also makes it easy for students to respond. “The app makes it possible to give students constructive feedback in a 1:1 manner,” says TED-Ed Innovative Educator Jennifer Hesseltine.

  1. Explain Everything

An interactive whiteboard, “It’s one of the most versatile apps you can have in your toolbox,” says TED-Ed community member Caroline Taylor-Levey.
