Teacher’s Day 2021: 8 apps on the Apple App Store that are best for teaching
Teacher's Day 2021: Teaching is not easy. And especially now when all lessons have been moved away from classrooms to online, teachers have to come up with newer, more innovative ways of keeping students interested in the lessons. If you are a teacher who uses the iPad or a Macbook for your lessons, we have some apps for you that will make your work easier. You might be using some of them already, but in case you aren't, we've also highlighted what they can do so as you can make the best of them. So, here are 8 Teacher's Day 2021 apps that are best for teaching:
iTunes U provides everything an instructor needs to bring the classroom together on iPad. You can build lessons with apps and your own materials, collect and grade assignments, start class discussions or talk with students to answer questions and provide feedback. iTunes U also allows anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to learn from a large collection of free education content in public courses from leading schools, universities, museums, and cultural institutions.
With iMovie, you can create trailers and 4K-resolution movies. All you need to do is choose your clips, then add titles, music, and effects.
