What are the best teaching tools for educators?

Teaching tools should be seamless. Have you ever adopted a new teaching tool and then found it caused more headaches than it cured? You need to address two questions before inviting an online teaching tool into your classroom:

    1. Does it help me perform my duties as a teacher better?
    2. Does the app benefit my students?

That’s it. But often, online apps for education don’t seem to pass the test. Teachers love TeacherMade because it allows them to focus on what matters most– teaching. Ed Tech tools should be easy and powerful while bringing higher engagement levels to your students.
