How I Use It
My students used Keynote to create simple presentations to reflect or present information they researched. They also published and illustrated poetry and short stories as a single slide Keynote, exporting their product as an image.
My Take
Keynote on the iPad is simple, elegant and saves automatically, an essential element when working with students who are new to technology. Keynote has beautiful themes and a simple interface to create themes and color schemes. Keynote is a worthwhile investment for student devices, it is much simpler and more powerful than free options.
