An update to going paperless with the iPad | Feker

An update to going paperless with the iPad | Feker | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it
I have been using the Bamboo a few weeks now and really like it. It is the same size as a pen with some weight so the feel of it is much better. Excellent build quality for a simple tool and the silicon type top means it very nicely glides across the screen and much easier than the Pogo stylus. I really am enjoying using it. I have a number of notepads for different projects open within the app Penultimate and its working really well. Referring back is easy. Not carrying paper is great and the only thing I am very careful about is ensuring my iPad always has plenty of battery.

>My Best Tip Ever:  Student Participation Sheets For Computer lab or Classroom « myweb4ed | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it
This Student Participation Sheet one of the most popular teaching tips that I share when I present locally or at other districts. I can’t take credit for creating it as it was something I picked up along my 20 years of teaching.
I use the Student Participation sheet whenever classes come to the lab to encourage them to stay on task and to follow the school and computer lab rules.
It is a cinch to manage and record but the biggest benefit is that it really works with the students.
