Designing for Learning's curator insight, February 3, 2:22 PM

A nice iPad app that allows you to import PPT slides or create new ones, and produce either a screencast or presentation. This could be great for students who want to practice a live presentation so that they can play it back for peer or self-assessment. Better still, it also includes some interactive polling tools to encourage audience participation. Definitely worth a look.

This article describes the writing process by using an ipad to organize, compose, and edit their written language.  Many students do not enjoy writing because of the process it takes for them to write (think of an idea, form the letters, make a complete sentence, and then edit the work)
