How I Use It
I used to use another app for note taking with my students. There was a problem during an update and it stopped working the way it should. So I tried Bamboo. It was a great shift. I presented to my students. I used them with older students that are learning English as a second language. They use the Ipads with Bamboo as a notebooks or notebooks during the lessons. They were able to organize their notes according to the notebooks that appeared on the initial screen. Notes and exercises were much easier to be done. The great thing about it is that if students had doubts about something and did not want to ask at that moment, they could just paste the notes on the email screen and add a question. It is great for differentiation, teachers need to be creative to use it at it best.
My Take
What I found more interesting about it is its simplicity. I initially thought it would work only with the pen Bamboo sells, but it did not, it is ok to use with any kind of pen to write on Ipads. The options are not so many, but enough for those that want to use the app as a replacement of paper notebooks. Bamboo gives great possibility for sharing the files, from Twitter to Evernote. When shared by email, the note is placed on the writing field as a picture. This is a great advantage. So far, I have not seen something to complain about this app. It is sensible as other note taking apps, so it might change pages when you just want to carry on with writing.
