So you got an iPad for your classroom, now what? Many iPad resources provide a list of iPad apps but rarely a list of strategies for implementation like this one. Here are some ideas on how to use the iPad apps for the techy teacher.
Class Dojo – Behavior Management tracking tool for the techy teacher.
Socrative – Test taking tool that lets the next student take the assessment.
iMovie – Video editing tool that allows students to shoot, edit and create movies/trailers.
Skitch – Teachers use this to annotate diagrams or get students to annotate for the class to see.
Toontastic – Can be used in small groups to create digital cartoon stories.
Scribble Press– Another great digital storytelling app that lets students write and illustrate stories.
Educreations – Interactive whiteboard app that makes screencasts of the lesson or student work.
Qrafter – Scans QR codes. Great for a QR Scavenger Hunt which can be made for free at classtools.net.
Stick Pick – A can of virtual popsicle sticks, but also a way to record/evaluate student responses in class.
Doodle Buddy – Create pictures to save to the camera roll or use as a whiteboard in class.
Google Earth – Useful for Social Studies, mapping, locations, continents, states, etc and ALWAYS up to date.
DropVox – Record audio and automatically have it sent to a Dropbox folder on the teacher’s computer.
