"Be Appy" Monday



Hi Friends. I'm Sandy Cangelosi with Sweet Integrations. I'm joining Tech With Jen and other bloggers on "Be Appy Monday" to share new apps we recommend. I was recently researching apps for test preparation, when I came across a new app called ClassKick. ClassKick was just released this past fall by a team of engineers and teachers. It is thought to dramatically increase student learning by receiving immediate feedback from their teacher and collaboration with classmates.

1. Students get a Kick out of ClassKick

Students complete teacher-created assignments on a tablet workspace. Teachers can create their own worksheet, embed web content and add video or audio.

2. Teachers

Teachers can see the whole class working at once on his/her device and see how each individual student is performing. The students can work at their own pace.

3. Students

If a student needs help, he/she can ask for help privately on their device. The teacher can reteach a concept on the device so the whole class can see.  Or, a student can receive tutoring from another student in class. Students can even use this free app at home!


4. How Does it work?

After the teacher creates an account, there are several step-by step tutorial videos to watch before actually creating assignments. Teachers can then add their students to their roster. Screenshots can be added from your google drive, the web or images from your camera roll. Images can be cropped and rearranged to fit on the page. Text, audio and video can be added to the workspace and links to websites. Next, give students are given the class code so they can complete the assignment and so their instructor can view their work.

I can imagine so many uses for this new app. Teachers can use ClassKick for social studies, math skills, reading comprehension, and review for tests. I love how students can get immediate feedback and work closely with their classmates.

Watch this video to get an idea of how ClassKick works.

  1. Hey Sandy!

    Thanks so much for sharing! I am definitely going to play around with this app! I work at a 1:1 iPad district and can definitely see the benefits of this app! :) I use Nearpod regularly but my gears are already turning to use this with 3D shapes next week!
