Beyond Games- Using the iPad with Students in the Classroom
I know most of us only get a handful of iPads throughout the week. Think you can't use this? Put your students in teams and give one iPad to each team. This encourages them to synergize!
If you create an account you'll see My Profile, just click there and then find Training Tour at the bottom of your list. This will walk you through some of the features and show you how to use Socrative. I like this site because it can be accessed through any technology with internet access, including computers.
To be entered into the drawing for prizes initiate Socrative with your class on an ipad. Take a screen shot once students log in (shown under student in room) and send it to me.
Use Technology to Check for Understanding
Pics4Learning is a site where students can find photos to make a collage.
Every student doesn't have to use the same app. They all have the same assignment but allow them to find an app and learn to use it.
Before you make an assignment ask your students to explore these apps to see which they like best. Let them be the ones who learn to use it. You don't have to be the expert!
For another chance to win a prize, when you have a student create one of the above apps, do a screen shot. You can email me the screen shot and you'll have another chance to win! Can't send email from the school ipad? Take a picture of their ipad screen with your ipad or a camera and send that!
