Take Advantage of Digital Tools

Apps can come in handy for all kinds of reasons and helping you in the workplace is one of them. The Teacher’s Pet app has been designed specifically for teachers to help them plan, prepare, and present their lessons. The grade that you teach doesn’t matter, nor does the subject matter you are planning a lesson for. The app is versatile and works for your needs. You'll be able to plan your lessons by subject, grade, or date, send your lesson plan to other teachers, and also save it to your calendar. You can prepare for the lesson further by making use of the interactive white board and the ability to make notes. You can present your lesson by using the app and showing the content through an overhead with a VGA connector, or even easier by AppleTV wirelessly.

The app hasn't been updated in over a year but that certainly hasn't hurt it where the customer ratings are concerned. The app currently has a perfect five star rating from users who love the ease of use, the functionality it offers, and the tools built-in.

Navigating the App

The Teacher's Pet app features a clean and fun user interface that makes planning and presenting your lessons a breeze. One of the stand out features in the app is the Interactive WhiteBoard that allows you to import information to it and then you can email or print the content if you like. Another cool feature is the ability to import content right to your students' mobile devices such as text, audio, pictures, flash cards, and video. Use the calendar to schedule lessons, meetings, when the grades are due, test dates, and more. This really does modernize how teachers plan and present lessons.
