S'Cool Tools of the Week: Vocaroo, MyBackpack

Nov 30, 2014

TOO COOL (PERFECT FOR SCHOOL): Here we go again! We've got our favorite edtech teacher and administrator tools for the week right here, as highlighted in our Instruct newsletter. Our fave S'Cool Tools are:

Free! Hat tip to tool expert Richard Byrne for pointing us to Vocaroo! Educators, we know there are bugs going around, and getting sick around the holidays can really wear on your students. But free apps like Vocaroo allows you to easily distribute substitute teacher lesson plans and directions to students, especially when you use them with a communication app like Remind.

Free! For you preK through 2nd grade teachers out there, MyBackpack provides interactive nursery rhymes for students to read, listen and sing along to. The app includes 16 tales and 35 songs about reading, math, and science. There’s also a “Mental Math” game, with prompts that train students on basic arithmetic.
