Thoughts on ipads in the classroom

I was lucky enough to attend an online webinar hosted by CTAP. This was very basic and as such did not offer much information about how to set up schools wide systems for using Ipads. However, as a single user there were a number of great resources. Please visit this website for links to some of the resources.

As a high school practitioner I am always on the lookout for app’s that are appropriate and useful for this age group. Below are the ones that I will be exploring in the months to come.

air sketch: wirelessly interacts through a url to any computer in the room, therefor can be set up to project drawing in real-time.
screen chomp: works like jing. saves to Facebook, or to screen chomps website and then downloads as mp4.
coaches circle: can annotate video to highlights certain things.
Molecules: free science app that animates things like cells and molecules
whiteboard pro: collaborative white board.
inkling: interactive texts books that have social networking capabilities
