Apps to help with revision

​​As teachers push on through into the final summer term, they may be looking for ideas to better engage their hot and over-tired charges. We all know that apps are a part of Gen-Z’s everyday life – so why not make them a part of your everyday teaching? Asks Clevertouch Software Development Manager Rob Xenos.

The buzz at Bett and other education trade shows in 2024 has been about edtech supporting teachers, streamlining assessment and reducing workload. Software and AI are fast becoming the focus of edtech. Damian Hinds has rightly made it his crusade to highlight the importance of edtech in teaching. As advanced as it is, technology cannot replace good teaching or assessment but can enhance the classroom experience.

In addition to the wide range of shared teacher resources and lessons available to Clevertouch users, there is also a wide range of apps in our Cleverstore to choose from - advert and subscription-free – at no extra cost to you. Use these engaging apps to aid in teaching literacy to your little ones, fractions to your first years or the sciences to your seniors - and everything in between!

Here’s a quick round-up of just a few of the awesome apps available:

Day Dream Education

Numeracy is an integral component of the STEM strategy. Day Dream Education’s Maths Tutor app could close the learning gap for the meeker mathematician. As well as being a great presentation tool in lessons, this app can be accessed outside the classroom so students can consolidate their learning anytime.

Revision Buddies

This GCSE revision app caters to various exam boards and specifications for all key subjects. All UK secondary schools with Clevertouch panel get a free one-year Revision Buddies School Licence. In addition to the Revision Buddies Teacher Dashboard, students can have free access to all the Revision Buddies apps to test their knowledge on their home devices. The apps even signpost external resources, such as past papers and mark schemes, so students can consolidate their learning.
