iPad Apps for Math Intervention

iPad Apps for Math Intervention | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."

Great inspiration for your next iPad Lesson! All of the topics could be assigned a list of possible apps - would love to create one of these that was strictly app based. So cool!

Free Technology for Teachers: Create Simple Narrated Photostories with Pixntell | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"Pixntell is an iPad app for quickly creating simple narrated photostories. To create a story using Pixntell all that you need to do is start a new project, select some images, place them in order, and then start talking about each of your pictures. You control the timing for each image. If you want to talk about your first picture for twenty seconds, your second picture for just three seconds, and your third picture for fifteen seconds, you can do that. When your project is complete you can upload it directly to YouTube, share it on Facebook, or send to friends via email."

Creating Book Trailers with iPads

Creating Book Trailers with iPads | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"We all know how traditional book reports work: read a book, then write a summary to prove you read the book. I have had to drag them out of my students in the past and can relate because teachers had to drag them out of me.

 

So what is a Book Trailer? It’s simply an advertisement for a book. Like a movie trailer, it highlights story elements without giving everything away to entice your interest."
