The Apple Watch is making quite a splash in the education world! While student usage of wearable technology in the classroom can be questionable, we believe that teacher usage can be beneficial. As strong supporters of education technology (read a blog post from our EdTech expert), we wanted to highlight the ways in which teachers can use the Apple Watch to teach smarter.
Create notes, reminders and checklists with the Evernote app. The Evernote app on your Apple Watch will sync up with the same app on your iPhone, so you’ll always have easy access to all of your ideas.
Pulling out your phone to read a text in front of your classroom is completely inappropriate. But there are some important notifications most educators would like to keep on top of. The Apple Watch notifies you about your choice of calls, messages, emails and more with a discreet tap.
Never miss a meeting again! Sure, alarms are not new functions for watches, but with the Apple Watch you can set alarms for events that are synced to calendars on all your Apple devices.
Ready, Set, Stopwatch!
Once again, a watch with a stopwatch is no new invention, but with multiple interfaces available, it is now easier than ever to time quizzes, speeches, etc.
Keep on Top of the News
With apps from news sources such as CNN, NPR, Yahoo News and the Guardian, the Apple Watch helps you stay on top of current events, so you can help students stay on top of them too.
