9 Apps to Up Your Teaching Game

Have you set goals for the new school year? Well, we’ve got the tools you’ll need to accomplish them. We’ve partnered with Common Sense Education to tell you about some of our favorite apps you can use to improve your teaching. Whether it’s helping you be more organized or setting up better learning scenarios for kids, these apps will keep your teaching fresh and interesting.

1. Backchannel Chat (iOS)

Grade level: 6–12 for students
Why you’ll be better: Increase student dialog and collaboration.
Cost: Free
How to use it: If you’re not quite ready to turn your students loose on Twitter, Back Channel Chat is a good alternative. It’s like a teacher-moderated version of Twitter that can help you engage students in discussions that may transcend the virtual space.

What teachers say: With the discussion occurring online, the playing field becomes more level and thus more inclusive. Reluctant speakers—ELLs, special-ed students and those who might just be more introverted—can all become active participants. However, teacher moderation is key. Front-loading chat etiquette and expectations, as well as structuring discussions around specific objectives, will help you enhance the discussion and better support learning.

This would be so much fun to win! I'm going to get my colleagues to enter, too, to up our school's chances of winning. 😜
What would your students invent if they had access to a 3D printer? How would their design, critical thinking, problem solving and engineering skills grow? You could find out, because we’re giving away a MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer to one lucky school.
