Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row | Technology for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"My 4th graders have been using the newly revamped Khan Academy website on our iPads since Mid-November. Things have been going great and I have seen a fantastic, better than average, increase in MAP Math scores from August to January.

 

I read a Tweet recently that mentioned an App called Front Row (or Front Row Ed Math). It is very similar to Khan in many ways but has some thing unique to it that I really like. Both Khan and Front Row are FREE and both give teachers access to "More Data About Their Students Than They Could Ever Use.""

    Show on a Big Screen
    Manage the Classroom
    Assess Student Work
    Interact with Students
    Manage Your Files
    Make Instructional Media

PowerPoint for iPad - Worth a Second Look [VIDEO] - teachingwithipad.org

PowerPoint for iPad - Worth a Second Look [VIDEO] - teachingwithipad.org | Technology for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Despite my ramblings and complaints about the $99 subscription needed to properly use Microsoft's office last week, I have come to enjoy using PowerPoint for iPad in the classroom. No, I have not paid the money to subscribe. In fact, I chose to actually delete Word and Excel as I don't see a need for them, and they were taking nearly 1GB of my iPad storage.

 

If you want to just use the free version of the three apps, you don't have the ability to edit nor create files. However, for PowerPoint, the “read-only” feature is actually very useful in my teaching. Since most people will have ready-made PowerPoints already created, they will be able to access and project them to their class using a projector."
