It seems like technology dominates our lives nowadays, but there are plenty of apps that can make your life as a teacher earlier. This series will go over different productivity, lesson planning, classroom management, and creative apps to help you in the classroom.
Oftentimes when having difficulty coming up with new ideas, one looks to the web. This is no different for teachers who are looking for new lesson plans. Luckily, there are apps out there that make it easy to find ideas and topics for a lesson.
While Pinterest is most popular for sharing recipes and DIYS, there are many teachers on the website who post lesson plans, crafts, and other helpful tips. There is even an education section, which is full of great resources. Make an education board of your own and post your favorite ideas on it for later.
This app makes it easy to come up with a lesson plan. You select the grade level, subject and lesson type, and the app does the rest. You can use their ideas, or use them as a jumping off point.
iTunes- U offers full course lectures and materials in every subject for both students and teachers. It is a great way for you to expand your knowledge and for students to supplement their in-class lessons. Listening to these lessons can give you ideas for topics or for how to teach topics. Districts can even sign up to have teachers create their own courses.
Planboard makes lesson planning easier. You can create your academic schedule and view what you have to prepare for each week. The app allows you to set academic standards for students, making it easier to track overall progress. There is even a database with publicly-shared lesson plans created by others teachers at your disposal.
Renters Insurance: Spend a Little. Protect a Lot
If you rent your apartment, house, or condo, you probably need insurance. Remember, your landlord isn't responsible for your belongings, or if you need to find another place to live, or any personal liability you may face if someone is injured in your home. Renters Insurance covers your valuables—such as TV, laptop, and cell phone—for theft or damage at home, in your car or on the go.
