sleek-geek was founded by teachers excited about building the next generation of digital tech tools for tablet devices and the web. We want to bring our experience and knowledge of what works in classrooms, what engages students as well as the gaps and needs that still exist to develop apps, games and management tools that can have a direct impact on student learning.
Currently we have three apps in development:
Available online and in the iTunes store, Read With Me streamlines the burdensome and time consuming process of monitoring reading progress for all grades. It is built for mobile devices so anyone can now conduct “running records” using their own text, recording videos and generating fast reports that can be shared with parents and other teachers.
Yooply is a comprehensive behavior management app built for all web-enabled mobile devices. Going beyond apps that help teachers keep track of positive and negative behaviors in class, Yooply closes the disciplinary circle to include office referrals, detentions and other consequences, as well as student reflections.
Yooply is not a new behavior management system for your school, but a way to put your existing discipline plan into everyone’s pocket, including parents and students. You can customize your user experience to include the behaviors, rewards, and consequences that work for your school culture.
We are currently developing this tool and beta testing it with a few schools. To find out more and to sign up for announcements and release dates, please visit yoop.ly.
Core Math Jam 6
A middle school iPad and Android Math Skills practice game aligned to the now ubiquitous Common Core. Though first game is aligned for the 6th grade, CMJ is meant to help students master all middle school grade-level standards that so many have a hard time with, but which are essential to build foundational math success.
Core Math Jam will be released in the fall of 2013 and will be available on iTunes, Google Play store and Edmodo platforms. Future releases will include content for grades 1-8.
