What TinyTap does
TinyTap is an educational platform that enables teachers, parents, and students to create and share personalized interactive lessons, games, and quizzes. It provides a wide range of tools for creating interactive games and books, making it a valuable resource for classrooms, especially those using project-based learning. Teachers can use TinyTap to search for content that fits their students' needs or create their own games and books specific to their students' needs. TinyTap also offers a "Creativity Museum", a collection of games and books created by teachers, parents, developers, and authors. Teachers can follow their favorite creators and get their latest content in their feed, or download a game to their device for students to play. Teachers can also create their own games using the app's creation tools to import or create images, and then add interactive elements, including questions and answers, video, and audio. TinyTap offers an optional subscription to TinyTap Insights, which gives teachers access to data on student performance. Teachers can track their students' progress and adjust their teaching strategies accordingly. TinyTap also offers a unique opportunity for teachers to monetize their content. Teachers can set their own price and target audience for their games, and keep 80% of the revenue for each sale. TinyTap has a "Trusted Teacher" program, which recognizes teachers who create high-quality activities. Their lessons automatically appear in the Trusted Teacher section of the TinyTap market.
