How I Use It
I used this app for many different activities: Setting and then uploading of homework by students Keeping extra reading resources and past exam papers/mark schemes for pupils to access at home Uploading materials for a lesson -saves on photocopying! Marking and giving formative feedback on homework tasks
My Take
I found this app to be incredibly useful when I worked in a Secondary school where all pupils had an ipad. One of its main uses was to help the pupils organise their work. They could keep track of homework tasks and deadlines and then upload their work if necessary. It was also useful to keep a store of extra reading material and past exam papers which the pupils could access in their free time. We brought the paid version as the app was so popular with both teachers and pupils.
