5 Classroom Apps for Teachers

8 Feb

Are you a teacher? Do you need some apps to keep your classroom organized? Here are some apps we saw on Education World that you might like to use in the classroom.

TeacherKit

  • Teachers can build classrooms with student and course data, take attendance with the tap of a touchscreen, as well as take quick behavior notes to monitor classroom performance and participation. The app provides a full gradebook (with weighting options), and report summaries for parents and guardians, all backed up to the Cloud.
  • Price: Subscription

ClassDojo

  • With ClassDojo you can build a classroom, take attendance, and store general student information. Although ClassDojo doesn’t include a formal gradebook or reports section, it does add some cool communication tools. With ClassDojo, you can privately message parents using their email or phone number through the app.
  • Price: Free

Remind

  • With Remind, you can add students and parents to a class by sharing an email link or by simply having them send a text to your Remind username using their devices. The beauty of using communicators like this is your ability to communicate through the app while maintaining your private phone number.
  • Price: Free

Google Classroom

  • Google Classroom is free for all schools signed up for Google’s Apps for Education (which is also…free). In short, if you are already using Google Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Sites, you need this app. Google Classroom streamlines the submission process for these features by allowing teachers to build classroom folders, give online grades and feedback, post conversations and announcements, ad share classroom calendars.
  • Price: Free

PowerTeacher

  • PowerTeacher is your all-in-one organizing system. Create classes, take and track attendance, monitor grades, keep detailed student and parent information, and print complete reports. Students and parents can download the PowerSchool app to access the gradebook, attendance reports, check the school’s calendar, read announcements, and contact educators and administrators. It’s a phenomenal gradebook system that seems to improve yearly.
  • Price: Suscription

The Top College Scholarship Search Platforms

4 Feb

Are you trying to find the best college scholarships? I’m guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students. In the course of our research, we found a common pain point among students was finding tools to sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation. We were contacted by Reviews.com to post these guides. They spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular scholarship search platforms that are currently available. They analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, and useful student resources.

You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here:

Check out these free guides! We want students and their families can have access to these resources so you can succeed.

13 Jan

Are you looking to create a quick logo? Are you in a pinch? The best route is to always hire a professional graphic designer for a unique brand experience but we’ve discovered an alternative. We recently reviewed the newly released online logo maker DesignEvo; it actually does a pretty good job at creating unique and professional logos for free. It walks you through choosing your industry, then logo style and then dives you into adjusting fonts, colors and shapes. When you are ready, you can download this is where the catch is!

You have an option to choose from three packages: free, basic and plus. With the free plan, you can download the image as low resolution with a background. For basic plan, the resolution increases and you can download it with a transparent background. The plus plan gives you copyright and ownership.

Here are some of its key features:

  • Million icons available to search through
  • Hundreds of text fonts and shapes to choose from
  • Freely customize a logo with powerful editing tools

We recommend this tool because it’s easy to use and creates good looking logos. If you need a logo in a pinch, use this platform.
