The iPad has always labored under the shadow of its little brother the iPhone. When Apple launched the tablet back in the spring of 2010, everyone thought it was derivative—it’s just a big iPhone!

"As I dig deeper into the reality of the one iPad Classroom I am most intrigued by apps that allow students and teachers to create. On a computer I have learned to weave together digital tools to make them do exactly what I want them to do, but I must admit I am not there yet on the iPad. One app that appeals to me for teaching and learning on an  iPad is Explain Everything."

How I Turned My Classroom into a ‘Living Video Game’

How I Turned My Classroom into a ‘Living Video Game’ | ipad in the classroom | Scoop.it

I use QR codes and augmented reality codes to help students move independently from one activity to the next. Kids use cell phones or tablets to scan the barcodes, which take them to websites or instruction pages with directions for the next activity, or to “cheat codes,” with strategies to help them solve the “boss-level problem.” I even decided to forgo the usual grading system in my classroom, so that as far as the students knew, they were either “Leveling Up!” (proficient) or they needed more practice with “Game Over: Try Again.” They stopped defining themselves by grades and saw “try again” as an opportunity to do just that.
