Mobile Apps for Elementary
by Monica Simuong
Teachers can provide students with the option of creating a Toontastic story in lieu of a traditional written short story. Students who have difficulty writing may benefit more with this interactive visual app!
Using this app, students can create collaborative projects about a subject, voice over the information they have collected and share it with the class as a presentation.
This app can be used by students who are studying for exams. Students can create flashcards of the information and then form quizzes to challenge themselves in preparation for the test!
After learning about a topic in class, teachers can use Socrative as a quiz to test the understanding level of students. Without the hassle and time it takes to grade handwritten quizzes on paper, teachers and students can quickly pinpoint where they are and review or move forward with the lesson.
Students could use this app to create a presentation, a short film, or tutorial to showcase their understanding of a particular topic. Teachers can then view them in front of the class or assess them individually.
