""t is interesting to reflect how this simplification of iPad key tools has changed in a relatively short space of time. iWorksuite aside, you could purchase the above apps for less than the cost of a textbook and have a model that could enhance learning with the right application."
ou will notice that Google Drive and Explain Everything are an integral part of the learning process. A centralised store with the ability to share foldersand information is crucial for educators and students alike. Google Drive has been chosen as it allows 30GB of free storage for every user. You must be registered as a Google Apps For Education institution.
Explain Everything serves as a platform to enhance and demonstrate learning. It has been written about many times as the go-to app for education. However, it is only as good as the user. The educator can record screencasts, transform feedback and personalise learning with it. Students can demonstrate learning, collaborate, create and feedback as well as export their work to their required destination.
The rest of the tools have creation and collaboration at their core alongside the assessment for learning with feedback mechanisms. It is my intention to blog about these processes, as their use develops in our own 1:1 iPad environment and I welcome any input. Any of the apps recommended above are well worth looking into and are suggested after much discussion and debate.
