eBooks for Primary and ESL, iPad Skills- Bookmarking and Airdropping, a Few Testing Motivation Resources

Unite for Literacy: Excellent tool for ESL, World Language and Emergent Readers

Unite for Literacy is an awesome and free eBook collection that is available online and can be used on desktop computers or tablets, like the iPad.

Students can choose to read the texts or have the text read to them in their language of choice. While this is a great tool for emergent readers, this could be an excellent resource for students learning a World Language or for ESL students.

Be sure to bookmark this site on your iPad! (see the video below).

2 Ways to create a Bookmark on your iPad

iPad Tip: How to Bookmark a Webpage

iPad tip: You can use Airdrop to share websites with students in class

The Airdrop feature on an iPad can be used to share content between iPads that have Airdrop enabled and are within 30 feet of one another.

This could be a useful tool to help all of your students navigate to the correct webpage quickly. The video below will show you the steps to make that happen.

This would be a good, basic iPad skill to practice. Look for me to share more advanced ways to use Airdrop with file sharing in the future.
