How I Use It
I used this app to have students create visual representations of what we were learning in class. For example, after learning about magnetism and electricity, students had to create a page in Paper 53 that showed their understanding of how the two are connected. I have students draw or write their thinking, then use Reflector to project their Paper 53 screen for the class to see.
This is great for offering an open-ended way to show understanding. The pens are easy to use and the app is very simple. There is no need to purchase any extra tools for the classroom. It is very intuitive to use and helpful for students who are visual learners. Since you can use the pen to write words or draw pictures, each student can explain his understanding in the way that works for him.
