9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning

9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning | Creative Tools... and ESL | 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!

Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+? | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Most colleges and business schools use a Presentation Rubric to evaluate their students. Funny thing is, they’re not usually that open about sharing it with their students (as if that would do any harm!)

Well, we don’t believe in shutting down information. Quite the contrary: I think the best way to practice your speech is to know exactly what is being tested!
