Mark Mate has saved hundreds of teachers thousands of hours of work. We pride ourselves on reducing teacher workload while increasing the quality of feedback for students. But Mark Mate isn’t the only app that can help you at work. Today, we’re going to take a look at some other apps for teachers that can make your life in the classroom easier! Read on to see some of our favourite ed-tech apps!

We’re in the middle of an ed-tech revolution, and Mark Mate is at the forefront. Mark Mate is a revolutionary tool that helps you mark 30 books in just 30 minutes.

Kahoot

As teachers, we love to turn a boring lesson into a game to motivate our students. But not everyone has the skills to make a game from scratch. Thankfully, the GetKahoot website makes it easy to turn your class into a gameshow. All you have to do is enter your prepared questions and answers into the site to create an instantly playable game. Your students can then download the Kahoot app to use as a buzzer to join in on the fun. Kahoot is available on iOS and Android.

Remind

Remind makes it easy for teachers to communicate with students and their parents in realtime. You can make announcements, initiate group chats, or contact people privately through the app. Your messages, which can contain files, images and links, can even be translated into more than 90 languages, making it possible to communicate with parents who are non-native English speakers. Remind is available on iOS and Android.

Classtree

apps for teachers

Collecting parental consent forms from your students for school trips can be a nightmare, but Classtree makes the process painless and paperless. Unlike Remind, which simply helps you to tell parents of the logistics of an upcoming field trip, Classtree actually lets you attach a consent form for parents to e-sign. The app lets you add optional questions, respond to urgent queries, and manages comments from parents. The app even shows you exactly who has seen your note and who owes you a signed form. Classtree is available on iOS and Android.

So there you have it, three of our favourite apps to help make your life easier. Alongside these fantastic apps for teachers, Mark Mate would make a fantastic addition to your smart phone, so why not take a look at what we have to offer too?
