Elthorne guide to learning apps
What do I use for....?
From the same family of apps as Evernote but this time you can actually write or even draw!
Sharing documents and backing up my work
This area could be instead of a USB or a place to collaborate on work.
An online storage area- all students already have this- their eduapps account. Use Google Drive to share work online or to mark. The teacher needs to set up a 'Submit' folder and a 'Marked' folder. To have an online record of all work submitted could be a really powerful AfL tool.
Creating a presentation
Link your ideas together to plan for an essay.
This is an app which helps with AfL. You will need the teacher version and your students will need the student version. You can create exit quizzes, starters or even games to test they have understood key concepts. It also allows you to store their results and export to an Excel spreadsheet for analysis.
Compatible with Windows...?
This app allows you to edit Word and Excel documents. Note: These documents must be from Dropbox or Google Drive initially.
