In an attempt to lessen the impact of COVID-19, many countries around the world are closing their schools. This opens a host of complications for teachers. What is the best way to educate remotely? How can you engage students digitally, when they’re at home? How do you translate an in-class curriculum to an online platform? For teachers looking for a STEAM solution for children ages 4-14, Apps for Kids Classroom is the answer. Apps for Kids is an online ecosystem of apps that can be used to capture, create, print, and make ideas and creativity come to life. It’s utilized by educators around the world to teach students about STEAM concepts and the engineering workflow.
And we’ve even created a playlist of Apps for Kids videos made specifically for educators who are teaching their students remotely.
The video series starts with the basics of using Apps for Kids and allows both educators and students to ease into the apps. The Apps for Kids team is always looking for feedback from educators, parents, and students, and we want to do what we can to help users transition into remote learning.
Educators can reference curriculum found within the product, organize self-contained classes and teach their students the principles of engineering and design using Apps for Kids Classroom. The easy-to-use interface provides a secure platform where educators can set-up and manage student accounts, collaborate with students and other educators, and directly share content.
