Peter Lakeman's curator insight, January 21, 2014 1:50 AM

ik vind dit een handige tool, omdat je niet zoveel hoeft in te stellen. Het werkt gewoon. Je iPad werkst als een soort server waarop je met een andere computer die op een beamer is aangesloten connect. Alles wat je schrijft op het 'whiteboard' van je iPad verschijnt op het bord. Je kunt ook schermen opslaan en een kopie maken.

Gewoon eens proberen!

Foldr | Remote File Access From Any Device & Workflow Solution For iOS from Minnow IT | Best iPad apps for education | Scoop.it
Mike Hale's insight:

This the best solution I have seen to a problem all school's encounter when using iPads. Having the ability to access and save files to the school's servers easily is the missing piece of the Jigsaw, particularly for school's who do not want to entrust their files with third party cloud solutions such as Dropbox.

Truss Me - An App for Designing and Testing Weight-bearing Structures - iPad Apps for School

Truss Me - An App for Designing and Testing Weight-bearing Structures - iPad Apps for School | Best iPad apps for education | Scoop.it

" Truss Me is an iPad app that students can use to design and test simple weight-bearing structures. Truss Me can be used in “challenge” mode or in “free play” mode. The challenge mode contains fifteen activities in which students are awarded points for strength and efficiency of their structures. For example, if a structure holds the weight but uses too many parts it doesn’t receive as many points as a structure using fewer parts while supporting the same weight. Structures that won’t work at all fall apart."
