Top apps for the class

Some of the apps I've used in my class (6-7 year-old children).

1

JClic

JClic

The tool I started with. You can create your own activities, from matching columns to memory games or texts with gaps to fill in. Add them to a project such as "Unit 3, Vertebrates" or "A night at the museum". You can also use projects with activities designed by other teachers.

Plickers

Plickers

You only need one screen and one device with Internet conection (laptop, tablet or even your own phone) to display your questions. Children receive one card each with a different picture like a QR code; they'll use it to choose answers from A-B-C-D.
Excellent tool to evaluate quickly as it provides a scoresheet from each test/question.

Quizziz

Quizziz

Similar to Plickers, where children have to select the right answer for your question. In this case, each child (or team, if you prefer) needs their own device to work on the activity.
One big pro: you can use it as homework for your class, and children can try the activity as many times as they want, until they get a 100% of the answers! It provides a report of children's progress too.

Smore

Smore

Not used by my group, but myself. You can create very colourful and attractive portfolios with a varied content (text, pictures, videos, buttons...). It was great to be able to share our first eTwinning project with our families thanks to this tool!!

Kahoot!

Kahoot!

One device to display the questions, and devices also for the children/teams.
It offers several possibilities. For now I've only used the quiz and jumble. If you go for the first one, children will have to choose the right answer from a given list. In the second option, the puzzle, they will have to order the answers to form a text, a word... To make the right choice, children need to pay attention to the colour and/or the shape of the required answer, and click it on their device.

Padlet

Padlet

Do you know those cork boards we hang on our walls to display our photos, concert tickets and other mementos? Here you have one!! Perfect to make a question in class and collect everyone's answer on a colourful board.
Share your reading reccommendations, gather ideas about what topic to choose for our next theatre performance or start vocabulary collections. On each post you can add photos, links or videos. Very easy to use!
