Content should be integrated in your digital platform, rather than an afterthought. With ClassroomAPP you can include your content (online, PDF, media even apps) directly into your courses. And thanks to the built-in Single Sign-on, you don't have to worry about access by your students. It just works.
ClassroomAPP was designed by sitting in the classroom - literally. We spent thousands of hours testing and improving the core features to make sure they serve teachers, students and leaders well.
Our goal is to make it easy to teach the digital classroom. A typical MDM (Mobile Device Management) lets you manage the devices. A teacher, however, needs to manage the actual instruction by leveraging technology. ClassroomAPP brings a refreshing teacher-focused pedagogical approach to education technology.
ClassroomAPP is a real classroom manager, remotely controlling student devices. You can also launch content, websites, tests ... remotely. There is one of you and 30 of them, ClassroomAPP gives you all the help you need at your fingertips. Imagine how much easier it is to teach an efficient classroom!
The first key differentiator of ClassroomAPP is the ability to allow a key number of sites real-time. As far as we can tell, we are the only app that can block and allow at the same time. For example, you can block all of YouTube but only allow a limited number of videos to show.
A second key differentiator is the ability to lock students onto a site. They can't change tabs or the URL. If they close the tab it reopens again.
ClasroomAPP includes the typical security tools you expect to keep our students and their data safe.
First, it houses the largest and most comprehensive database of 'bad' sites (including pornography, malware etc.) School administrators can also add custom sites or categories to block by default.
Secondly, it blocks the largest list of proxies (updated almost daily) and it automatically puts all major search engines in safe mode. These two are the most common way students employ to squirt web filters.
ClassroomAPP is the only application that monitors everything your students are doing! This makes for amazing possibilities to correlate information, from test results to browsing and content history.
Wouldn't it be great if you could tell at a glance if students benefited from a new resource or a new approach?
Easy-to-use drill-down reports & charts give you the flexibility you need.
In addition to the main features, designed for in-classroom teaching, ClassroomAPP also includes advanced LMS (Learning Management System) features. These were developed based on school feedback in our quest to make it as complete and useful as possible.
You can choose to stick to your LMS (such as Google Classroom) as ClassroomAPP was designed from the ground up to integrate.
Technology should be the enabler of easy collaboration within and without the classroom, not only for students, but for teachers too! A whole suite of social media types of tools are available (Blog, Wall, Chat), students can even create a space where they can collaborate in groups at will. Imagine how much easier it would be if teachers can share tests and content, and do so easily.
Are your assets well utilized?
Schools and districts purchase so much every year of devices, software and content licenses they have a hard time keeping track of them and who is using them. Imagine if you could purchase the exact number of licenses of the tools used. Many publishers obfuscate this data, but now with ClassroomAPP you will have clear visibility on both usage as well as efficacy.
Parents are an integral part of your classroom, even if they are not there. Teachers spend a lot of time communicating with parents, and many parents wish they had more visibility. ClassroomAPP comes with full parent interface built-in. Parents can now access controlled parts of your course. The App even contains chatting capability so you can communicate with parents collectively or individually, with real-time notifications.
A complete testing engine allows you to administer tests in-classroom, including the common question types, students recording audio or submitting documents. As ClassroomAPP is integrated with Google Docs, Office 365 and even Dropbox, students can even submit their online work.
Tag your content and questions with state-approved standards or make up your own tags to organize your content. You can then precisely measure student performance per individual standard with ease.
ClassroomAPP makes it a breeze to launch apps on student devices. We support all the common login methods (Google, Microsoft, Clever, LTI etc.) in addition to auto logins for password-only apps. Many publishers still require students to log in, we make it seamless for you.
ClassroomAPP includes a full featured LMS as well (or you can use yours). You can bring the whole experience full circle with full integration of classroom tools and learning tools. No more swapping apps in the classroom, it's all in one place.
PBL is taking the US by storm! Many educators are attracted to its learn-by-doing approach which develops 21st century problem-solving skills. ClassroomAPP has developed with experienced educators the easiest tool to build, manage and monitor your PBL project following the Buck Institute approach.
