You could have your students focus on a specific region, or topic like capitals. Teachers can set up tournaments that allow students to play on another and determine a class champion

I’ll introduce you to a few of my favorite apps for educators for productivity, as well as show you some great places to search for the best apps out there that have been recommended by educators, for educators, as well as learn from the successes and failures of some of the 1-to-1 initiatives. We’ll then take some time to share our favorite apps for the different subject areas out there.
