Duolingo, Inspiration, and Whiteboard!

Duolingo – This app is great because it teaches you another language. I think it’s useful because as a teacher you would have students whose second language is English, so it might be difficult for us to communicate. Using an app that can help both the teacher and student communicate is always important because it’ll make it easier for the student to learn along with the rest of their class.

Inspiration – This app is great for teachers who want to use a visual aid to help with breaking down content for their students. It is also useful for students who might want to write an essay but don’t know where to start. This can serve as a map planner/guider.

Whiteboard – This app is a great alternative to drawing with only pencil and paper. There are multiple colors and different sizes of boldness in the writing. Students can use this app when creating art, but digitally.

  1. I agree that Duolingo is a great app for learning a second language. It is interactive and fun. However, it is important to note that the app is not for direct use in the classroom. It isn’t a dictionary, but a game. Another downfall to Duolingo is that it sends you constant notifications and emails if you haven’t played in awhile

    1. I agree that many apps seem appealing at first, but need to be researched and tried out, and sometimes discarded, due to time-wasting advertisements or notifications. With all the work teachers have to do, who has time to waste with useless notifications? 🙂
