Rover: Free Education App That Streams Content
Today we explored Raz-Kids by Learning A-Z at Bungay. The program is tailored to meet students' individual reading needs and students were very engaged because the books were animated. We then decided to try the "Learning A-Z" app on the iPad by Lazel Inc. to have access to Raz-Kids. This app did not work. I then came across the app called Rover. Rover allows you to use Raz-Kids on the iPad. Rover is a free app that streams educational K-12 content on the iPad. On the Rover app you can access different educational content like Starfall, Discovery Education, Funbrain, and Reading A-Z. The content is filtered so you know that your students are not receiving any inappropriate content. If you have iPads in your classroom and a Reading A-Z, Raz-Kids, Starfall, or Discovery Education subscription this app is perfect for you. Please let me know if you would like this app on your iPads.
