iPad Apps for Math Intervention | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | 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."

"Here are two more videos from Teachmeet iPad, which really are invaluable guides to two essential apps.My thanks to Lisa/ @lisibo who specially recorded her video for the evening for use at both TM iPad and TM Brum. Lisa talks about an app called Explain Everything, which can be a powerful way for children to demonstrate what their learning through animation and annotation. We also have a guide to one of my favourite apps, Book Creator, from the very knowledgeable @idletim from Bradford. Book Creator is a brilliant way for children to create their own ebook and the video provides a brilliant introduction for new users."

"I’ve never really thought about this until now, but if you use a tablet extensively, you have to watch how you’re seated when you’re using it. Just like how you sit in front of a normal computer matters to your back and neck posture, the same rules equally apply to when you’re using your iPad, Android tablet or Kindle Fire."
