You Want iPads For Your School ... But Is That Enough?

Everywhere I turn schools seem to be buying iPads. Critics, even in this forum, question whether investment in a relatively new and untested technology can be justified, especially given the current economic climate. To some degree, I think their scepticism has merit.

Buying iPads for your…

Doceri Remote - The Interactive Whiteboard for the iPad

Wow! You have got to try Doceri Remote for the iPad and Doceri Desktop for the PC/Mac.  This app has one feature that I have not found on any other desktop remote.  It allows you to annotate on anything.  Basically, your iPad, PC/Mac and Projector becomes your digital smart board.  There is no need to pay for expensive and bulky smart board systems.  Nor any of the wireless pen based whiteboards.  Doceri is all you need.  Doceri gives you the freedom to teach from anywhere in the classroom.…

UPAD:What You Need To Save Paper!

The iPad app "UPAD" has probably the most potential of making us truly paperless. UPAD allows you to take typed or handwritten notes, edit uploaded pictures with multiple pen colors, create your own documents from preloaded templates, or import PDF's to create your own templates.

So far, I have used UPAD for students to take spelling tests, complete Everyday Math master sheets, proofread and edit their writing, draw on photos they have taken, and send all of it to parents via…

iPad Organization

I also create specific folders for lessons or units of study. The folder labeled "Earth" on our classroom iPad was created for small group work. Students had the task of answering the question, "Why are we able to…

Using Replay Note for Screencasts

I've used the SMART Recorder and my SMART Board to create screencasts for my math classes and then posted them on YouTube.  It is sometimes hard to do so because of the time it takes to set up and my board is not always available.


Recently I found the app Replay Note and used that as an alternative to using my SMART Board.   Replay Note (a good deal at $4.99) is a fairly simple app to use.  It allows the user to choose…
