If in a classroom where students are provided tablets or computers, this app would be awesome. Teachers can create or download interactive presentations and then share those interactive lessons with the students. Students can submit responses through any mobile device or computer and a teacher can see their work in real time. These responses can be measured on an individual or class basis – which would be a great assessment tool.

Here’s how it works:

First teachers will need to create or download a presentation. Teachers can integrate quizzes, videos, polls, drawing tools, audio, slideshows, etc. into their presentations to promote student interactions. These presentations can be shared through “teacher mode” to the student devices or with colleagues. Once the teacher has opened their presentation, students may now launch the app and sign in with their first and last name. With this login information, teachers will be able to view student responses in real time. As the teacher scrolls through the presentation, the students’ presentations will sync without the student even having to swipe. I think the thing I like the most about this app is that it makes the teacher mobile. If the teacher has a device with his/her presentation on it and students all have access to a device with the same presentation, there is no need for a teacher to be stuck in the front of the room at the interactive white board. Teachers can now walk around the room as they give their presentation without having to sacrifice the interactive portions of their lesson.
