New App Helps Teachers Create Personalized Lesson Plans on Mobile Devices

A new app from TES Global is designed to help educators find digital content and create lesson plans on-the-go.

Called TES Teach with Blendspace, the free app is available for download in iTunes just in time for the new school year.

"TES Teach builds upon the popular lesson creation tool, Blendspace, which was acquired by TES in July of 2014. Over two million teachers and students already use Blendspace to organize any digital educational resources or content, whether from the web or their own files, to create and share differentiated lessons in one place. Over two million lessons have already been created and shared globally,” said TES Global in a statement.

Specifically, the app provides teachers with access to embedded quizzes, a search engine that searches through 2,300,000+ lessons and 1,600,000 resources, a virtual discussion option, a lesson editor and an option to provide student access.

After using digital content to create lesson plans, students can then access and learn with at their own pace.

TES Teach, like many up-and-coming educational tools, utilizes open educational resources to provide teachers with ways to create engaging content for their students.

In TES’s statement, teacher Kevin Tiller had positive things to say about his experience with the app thus far.

“TES Teach is a must-have app for tech savvy teachers because it shows you how to take content from places like tes.com, Google Drive, YouTube, and Dropbox and put it all in one cohesive lesson. It's super easy to use and it makes lesson planning fun.”
