23 Things Every Teacher Should Be Able To Do With An iPad

23 Things Every Teacher Should Be Able To Do With An iPad | iPad Apps Secondary | Scoop.it

"Using an iPad is simple due to its intuitive interface, elegant touch interface, and user-friendly operating system.

 

Below we’ve listed 23 different tasks a teacher should be able to perform with their iPad. We’ve tried to focus on the basics, along with some typical tasks a teacher may be required to complete. We’ve also (roughly) arranged them from less complicated to more complicated, so consider yourself an Unofficial iPad “Basic Hacker” if you can get to the bottom. For more complex iPad tasks and functions, we’re doing a follow-up post. Stay tuned!"

5 Apps for Note Taking

5 Apps for Note Taking | iPad Apps Secondary | Scoop.it

Now that more and more classrooms are becoming digital it seems there’s a market for note taking apps over writing long hand. While there is some practical value to handwritten notes, like being able to use the margins and free space to jot down anything that seems helpful, many students now are proficient or extremely proficient when it comes to typing skills and may even be faster note taking through an app than through long hand. Students are living their lives through computers and tablets, so it only makes sense to eliminate the bulk of paper notebooks from their backpacks in favor of their multi­purpose tablet. These 5 note taking apps go above and beyond the default notepad and make retaining information from the classroom both fun and extremely organized.
