Top 10 websites for future classroom

This list contains ten websites/apps we have learned in EDU228 class an d Saint Leo University that I have found useful and will want to use in my future classroom.

Kahoot

Kahoot

Kahoot is a review game. The question is on the board and students use a device to click on the color the believe holds the correct answer. This will let teachers know where each student struggles or excels. Kahoot is free for all users and teachers can create their own Kahoot for their classroom. Students must use critical thinking when answering the questions on the board.

ClassDojo ♥

Build wonderful classroom communities with parents and students. ClassDojo allows teachers to post things to a Facebook-like wall for parents to see at home. Teachers can post pictures of class activities, field trips and more. This allows the parent to kno wwhat is going on during their child's school day even when the child says "we didn't do anything'. ClassDojo is also a rewards system. Throughout the day, a teacher can give or take away points to each student. A student can earn points by pushing in their chairs, being in class, sharing with another student, etc. A teacher can take away points for rudeness or failure to follow directions.

Quizlet encourages studying of students by being able to create flashcards. Many set of flashcards are already created so students can search for a specific topic of cards. This source uses a substitution of normal flashcards because they are online. They also simplify the activity of making flashcards and save time.
