Get your students quickly signed into their own accounts and playing lessons with QR Login. It is not easy for younger students to remember usernames and passwords. And, logging into accounts for an entire class should be fast and easy for teachers.
To make it easy for them to sign into their own accounts, TinyTap generates a unique QR code for each student’s account. Now they can focus their time on completing assignments, mastering tests and creating their own games.
To sign in students simply need to click the “sign in with QR code” button and scan their codes with the camera on their device when they open TinyTap on an iPad, iPhone or iPod.
In class, make it easy for students to login independently by cutting out individual cards for each student to keep at their desks, or posting the class QR code printout on a wall for easy access.
At home, parents can hang the QR code on the fridge, or in their child’s room so kids can complete lessons at home.
How to Print Out QR Codes:
From TinyTap Insights, select the group you would like to print QR codes for. Click on the members Tab, and you will have the option to print QR codes for sub-accounts.
Print QR codes to use in class
To print Login Cards to use in class, click the “QR Login Cards” button above your class link. This will generate cards for your entire class.
Print QR codes to send home
To print a QR code for children to use at home, click the “Parent Handout” button beside the student’s name.
Create voice-based activities with immediate feedback that empowers students to engage and learn
Introducing Talk or Type, a new feature that enables students to answer text based questions through speech. We have updated our Tap n’ Type feature to allow students to answer based on their learning styles and writing abilities.
Writing an answer is not always ideal for all students. Many are still learning how to write and those new to a language are discovering new words. Now students can practice spelling and pronunciation through voice-based activities that allow them to answer through speaking.
Empower Students and Provide Feedback with Talk or Type Activities
Enable students that can’t write to answer text questions. Now students can interact based on their abilities; create spelling activities, read-along games and counting that allow students to recite their answers verbally.
Add a level of engagement with verbal interaction. Bring an extra level of participation to science diagrams and storybooks with fill in the blank activities that allow students to answer through speech.
Practice pronunciation with verbal feedback. Learn new languages independently with lessons that provide feedback on pronunciation. And, utilize Talk or Type for speech therapy lessons that allow students to hear words and practice intonations and proper pronunciation, while learning how to spell the phrases correctly.
Discover how to use Talk or Type to add voice based activities to your TinyTap lessons:
Combine lessons to teach comprehensively and promote mastery of knowledge
Create comprehensive learning units for students by leveraging TinyTap lessons and games. With TinyTap Courses, teachers can design lesson plans to ensure student comprehension and mastery of knowledge.
Ensure Subject Mastery with Score Thresholds
Student understanding can be fully measured because they are only able to proceed to the next game once demonstrating a solid understanding of the concept. This ensures students are able to build on related concepts in the future.
Teach subjects more comprehensively by selecting 3 or more TinyTap activities in a related subject area. For example, when teaching students about grammar, you can include separate activities for nouns, verbs, and sentence structure, allowing students to process related subject matter.
You can share TinyTap Courses publicly to allow other users to discover your lessons. Courses make it easier for teachers, parents and students to find the educational content they need, and also make it easier for the TinyTap community to discover your content.

Teachers can also create templates for activities and monitor student progress in real-time as students create and interact with lessons.
Sync activities for classes and groups: Share activities for all your students on one account, allowing a fast and easy way for your entire class to access lessons. Simply make sure all devices are connected to the same Apple ID and the activities will be synced across all devices.
