Get your hands on the new free TeachMe-DT app, now!
This app is now available for download at the Android Play Store! If there is enough demand, it may appear in the Apple store too in the future..! This app works perfectly on all Android devices: phones, notebooks and tablets!
Bring your classroom to the 21st Century and use this app to develop technical knowledge and skills. The app contains video tutorials of the very best videos on the internet in one place, covering knowledge of materials, machines and tools used in D&T within the realms of Resistant Materials, Graphics, Food and Textiles!
These videos can be searched for individually as revision (most videos are under 4 minutes for quick revision) or used as demonstrations in lessons. The videos have been matched to the GCSE specifications for these subject areas to cover the majority of their required knowledge!
Now for the really excellent feature! You can print and stick QR codes on various objects and wall displays in the classroom (get all QR codes for over 150 videos featured in the app, in the zip folder below!) and you can scan the appropriate code on this app to get more information on the topic / tool / machine etc – this saves continued demonstrations and promotes excellent independent learning on the go!
The QR codes come in png files meaning you can resize them to be printed however large you want! They can be added straight to your own printable resources and and worksheets or printed onto sticky labels to be stuck onto the wall or on machines in your classroom!
It’s so easy to use for both pupils and teachers: simply stick the QR codes wherever you like, scan it using the QR scanner on the app and be taken straight to the video explaining all about the topic!

Bring your classroom into the 21st Century and let pupils use modern technology to enthuse and motivate them in their learning!
