9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning

9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning | Tech and Teaching | Scoop.it

"As an iPad Lab teacher, I work closely with the classroom teachers to deepen and assess their students’ understanding of the material taught in the classroom—oftentimes, teachers ask that I spend additional time in the lab covering material that they’ve already taught.

The apps listed below are some of my favorite apps to use in these instances. Technology allows students opportunities to demonstrate and engage in learning in ways that go beyond using paper and pencil.

A tedious review session, suddenly becomes a something to look forward to. Completing a project that demonstrates the child’s knowledge about a topic becomes a task to be enjoyed and flaunted.

Use these apps to take your classroom learning environment and assessment to the next level."

Hi I think you have compiled a great resource on teaching and learning with iPad. Also I would like to share with you this great new blog I came across on using iPad Pro in teaching learning http://www.assignmenthelp.net/blog/38-reasons-why-every-educator-needs-an-ipad-pro/ Give it a read if you find some time. You might like it.

Check out these apps to engage students as they show you what they know. I love it when we can engage students at a high level while making learning fun!

"Here is a great ice breaker activity for you if you have a few iPads to use in your classroom.

 

You will need around one iPad per group of 2-6 students. Or, if you only have one iPad, create a trailer as a class.

 

iMovie trailers is a very fun and easy way to create awesome short videos. Your class will probably be able to finish within one to two hours."

I can see this happening little by little now at our school. I just wish it moved along at a faster pace. Come on, people! Here's how we can go paperless. 80% of our tickets come from printing and printer problems. Printer needs toner, toner , toner, toner. What a waste of money and time, especially when we have no quotas here. Do you remember anything that you printed out from primary school? Do you still have it? We have yet to produce a paperless class. We're nothing but a bunch of tree killers. Sigh.

"It's no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference. That's why I've been really excited to see a wave of new (and mostly free or low-cost!) tech tools recently that enable teachers to take favorite clips and make them more valuable for educational use. Whether you use videos to flip your classroom or you just appreciate the power of video to engage kids, maybe one of the tools in my playlist below will help you go deeper in 2014."
