How I Use It
This app is used by all teachers and students in our 1:1 iPad initiative. Students use it for a variety of purposes, including: -as their binder for all of their classes by efficiently organizing all of their materials into classes and dividers -as their note-taking app both for typing and writing by hand (with a stylus or finger) -for science labs to take pictures and then annotate images -to add in voice notes as feedback to themselves or their peers Teachers also use it in a variety of ways, including: -to create interactive note guides with embedded internet links -as a more clear note sheet full w/ color notes w/ maps, images from the internet, and examples of high-quality work -to provide quick feedback to students by checking through work and providing voice-authored feedback when necessary (something impossible without effective technology tools!)
My Take
This is, without question, the most important app in our 1:1 initiative. It serves as a binder, note-taker, and assessment support tool that increases efficiency in a classroom for all involved. Students who previously were disorganized found this to be a life-saver and it was because of this app that many parents (whose children left our 1:1 team to go to a non-iPad team) complained that their child needed to keep an iPad with them in school. It is a must have!
