Top 5 Free Teacher Tools
To all fellow teachers that are having some trouble organizing your digital content… you are not alone.
Today we’re going to tell you about the TOP 5 TOOLS which can be helpful for structuring your class and making your life easier…
Lets Get Started
Hey folks, welcome to Hip Hughes History. Today we’re going over the top 5 free
Web apps that you should probably be using in your classroom, for managing stuff efficiently.
First up is Design Wizard. This is an excellent online video editing software with over 10,000
high-quality video and video templates to choose from.
You can create engaging videos to announce your your latest event, online course release, or grow your business.
The Design Wizard platform also features excellent integrations with Hubspot, Buffer and Marketo!
Best of all, you don’t need a degree or experience in video editing to create effective TV-quality ads in seconds.
Let’s start with an easy one here, because humans are dumb, they forget things and among humans, kids are the
ones who forget things even more.
Go to remind.com and sign up. What you can do with this website is that you’re going to be able to send messages
to your kids/students and their parents.
For example, if you wanted to remind them “Don’t forget your homework!”, “We have to go on a trip on Monday.”
This is where remind.com comes into play. Check it out, it’s free.
Go to drive.google.com and make sure that you’re using your drive appropriately.
I can find ever single test, every single worksheet.
Whether you’re using it to produce stuff for kids or kids are using it to produce stuff for class,
go and check out drive.google.com and start using it for school, otherwise you’re just a ding-dong.
Edmodo works just like Facebook, where you’re going to post things on walls. There’s going to be assignments online.
Everything can become digital or you can use it only halfway. It’s really up to you, but either way get onto these sites.
Join their classroom community so you can be speaking with other educators who are thinking like this across the world.
Schoology or Edmodo. Choose wisely!
Playposit (fka- eduCanon)
Go to learn.playposit.com. You’re going to use your free account to be able to embed questions, whether it’s free response
or multiple choice, it’s going to track all of that wonderful data.
You should start using eduCanon video assignments so you know what your kids are getting out of the videos,
so they can start to put that to use in the classroom, creating really cool new expressions of meaning.
We’re going to use wevideo.com as our last recommendation. I’m a huge believer in student production of film inside
the classroom across grade levels, curriculum areas. We have lots of other videos that are going to help you learn how to do that.
Now with a phone and internet connection, your class can be making movies on wevideo.com.
Kids are going to be able to upload clips. You can cut clips, layer music, put transitions and add special effects.
Then you can watch your movie, and you can learn what all the kids learned about that. Check it out: Wevideo.com.
So, these are top6 tools for my teacher fellows. You can check it out on www.hiphughes.com.
You can start filling your own tool belt and figuring out what’s going to work best for your classroom,
because it’s your teacher voice that counts the most. Where attention goes, energy flows.
