If you’ve used Geoglot’s Spanish Verb Blitz for iOS in school with your students, then we have some exciting news. The app can now be used with Apple’s iPad software for teachers and students, Schoolwork. That means you can now assign verb quizzes and track student achievement and progress directly in the app!
Top marks for Schoolwork
Apple are pushing their Schoolwork app and ClassKit environment as the next big thing in education, and rightly so. It makes it incredibly easy to send work to students and track progress and marks. Anything that makes teachers’ lives easier is a plus in our book, being educators ourselves. So we couldn’t wait to jump on the Schoolwork Apple cart!
New quizzes section
But it gets even more exciting than that. As well as Schoolwork compatibility, we’ve added a whole new Quizzes section to the app that anyone can use. It features graded pop quizzes with a focus on fundamental principle of Spanish grammar. These include:
- Conjugation of key verbs ser/estar/tener/ir
- Ser or estar?
- Irregular preterites
- Verb forms for narratives / storytelling (preterite first person singular)
We plan to add to these over time. If you have any suggestions or requests, please add them in the comments below – we’d love to hear from you!
Not a Spanish teacher? Not to worry, we’re planning to add Schoolwork compatibility to more of our verb apps for iOS over the coming weeks!
