What are Teachley-connected Apps?

We partner with other app developers to provide schools with a carefully-selected collection of Common Core-aligned apps. These apps sync with Teachley, providing schools a seamless login experience and rich formative assessment data on students’ progress.

 

I see two versions of the same app in the App Store. One is free but the other is not. What’s the difference?

EDU apps. Our EDU apps are designed for schools and work with a premium Teachley subscription. They sync with Teachley Connect to provide a seamless login and app management experience. Teachers can easily monitor student progress and access intervention support and instructional resources (e.g., lesson plans, instructional videos, etc.). Contact us to pilot Teachley’s premium services at your school.

Non-EDU apps. Teachers who do not have a premium subscription can access our award-winning content by downloading the non-EDU versions of our apps. These are also a great option for home use or extra math practice. Teachers and parents can create a basic account to personalize the learning experience for multiple children. Please note, a basic account does not work in the EDU apps and data reporting and intervention support are available for premium account holders.
