Every classroom has its daily routines. And, while it’s sometimes easy to see your VLE as time consuming, there’s actually plenty ways it can help you save time on those jobs that come up time and time again. Get a suite of useful tools in one place and Learnanywhere can quickly become a one stop shop for almost everything you need.
Below is a list of some of our favourite classroom tools. All of them can be added as a link in Learnanywhere. But, better yet, most of them also feature an embed code, meaning you don’t have to leave the platform when you use them.
If you’re always picking children at random for your class questions you might have used methods like lollipop sticks in sand or upturned pencils. For a quick and easy alternative, visit the bright and colourful random name selector.
Keeping track of time is vital for many classroom activities, from spelling tests to tidy up time. So, why not turn Learnanywhere into a virtual stopwatch. The online stopwatch site has a nice, child friendly selection to choose from.
Numeracy lessons often require random numbers for sums and problems. The primary games arena random number generator is the perfect alternative to standard number cards. It’s fully customisable too, making it suitable for any age group.
When starting a topic or subject, it’s worth doing a mind map or brainstorm with your class to find out what they know. Now, it’s easy to do it online with Bubbl.US. Just type your ideas on screen then save the file to use in Learnanywhere at a later date.
Finally, our favourite application – Post It. A virtual version of the classic classroom labelling activity and a great way to test children’s knowledge. Upload any image you want then embed in Learnanywhere for whole class or individual use.
