Unique method for accessing student work on iPads?

Unique method for accessing student work on iPads? | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"There is an awful lot of hot air blown about accessing student work from “class sets” of iPads, via email, WebDAV, Dropbox etc etc. A little known and cool method is this… We all know that we can share via iTunes over USB to any Mac/PC with a recent version of iTunes.

Well would you believe the same thing works without a cable and it doesn’t have to be the Mac/PC that manages the devices. It means that any teacher can access all the students files on a device that has been “Saved to iTunes”. You can even pick up the work, mark it and hand it back to the iPad whilst the iPad is still being used by the kids (unbeknown to the user!)."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - FAQs About iPads and Media in the Classroom

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - FAQs About iPads and Media in the Classroom | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"During the June and July 2012 sessions of the 3 day workshop “iPad Media Camp,” I asked participants to post questions they had about our curriculum as well as related topics using a Google form. Instead of just answering questions in class, I created narrated slideshows using the iPad app “Explain Everything” and posted the videos to YouTube. This way these videos can be used in class (including upcoming sessions) as well as shared with others who couldn’t attend in person. Below you’ll find the questions addressed in each screencast video as well as the videos themselves."
