Which Apps Are Best To Use In The Classroom?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you’re a teacher, you’ve probably noticed a transition in the classroom in the last handful of years. Even if you’re a relatively new teacher, you can look back on the experiences you had as a student and notice many differences, most notably in the way that technology is being integrated into the classroom. While technology definitely has its detractors, there’s no doubt that it’s here to stay. With that being said, it’s important to think about how you can maximize the way you use technology in your classroom, and one way you can do just that is to look into your options for apps for teaching. Here are some of the ways in which you can find apps that will be helpful to you in the classroom.

To begin your search, you can seek the advice of those whom you can trust for recommendations, such as colleagues and administrators at your school. Those who use apps as a way to integrate technology into their lessons will be able to make recommendations based on their experiences and will be able to tell you which apps they feel will work well for you based on your situation. As you’re talking with them, write down the names of the apps for teaching that they mention, and from there you can research each of them on your own.

A good way to do this research is to simply go to the online app store and pull up each of the apps that were recommended to you; this will allow you to read about exactly what they offer. While there are obviously always exceptions to this, generally speaking, free apps are going to offer you minimal help. Obviously these apps are no-risk propositions, so you can download them and try them out without losing anything if you don’t like them, but just keep in mind that you shouldn’t have extremely high expectations for them. Another good idea to implement before buying any apps for teaching is to read reviews for each of them before making any decisions. Typically, reviews are posted right in the app store where you can make your purchases, and are done in a simply “star” format, with room for a brief written review.

There are lots of ways in which you can apply technology in your classroom, and finding apps that will make your lessons more exciting, not to mention your job just a bit easier, are always welcome. As long as you do a bit of digging, you should be able to find the apps for teaching that will be perfect for your classroom.
