Web Literacy for Educators (book)
2, Notability is the note taking app we use. It allows students to hand write notes, type notes, and record audio. It can be set up to auto syn directly into Dropbox. It has been a fabulous tool for students who struggle with organization. For more information on Notability, click here.
3. The most exciting app we use is an app and a web site. It's eBackpack. While going paperless was not one of our main goals, it is an unintended benefit. eBackpack's latest update makes it the perfect digital tool for both teachers and students. Teachers can put handouts in eBackpack, then students can open those handouts and annotate on them, and turn them back in to the teacher without ever having touched a piece of paper. The most exciting part of eBackpack is that now teachers can open up student's homework in eBackpack and annotate or grade right in eBackpack and return the graded assignment back to the student without EVER leaving the app!
