iPad for Teaching & Learning
iPad for Primary Learning
On Monday, January 9, LCS is having a professional development day under the motto "Teachers Teaching Teachers". With my colleague Rhona, I will be hosting a one-hour session on iPads in the classroom. The main idea is to get teachers excited about exploring the use of our school iPads in their classroom, by giving a few examples of what you can do with an iPad.
Interactive and collaborative - Whiteboards are a great way for teachers to explain concepts to their students. With the ability of some iPad apps to record, you ensure that students who did not develop understanding of the concept the first time have the opportunity to watch and listen again and again. Working in small groups or brainstorming as a class, collaborative whiteboards are a great way to share ideas. Work in the same room, on the same network or even from different parts of the country. No matter what you are working on these interactive whiteboards are a great way to document or record your thinking process.

iPad: If you've been waiting for a utility that finally lets you take notes on a tablet screen like you would a piece of paper, either with a stylus or with your finger, 7notes for iPad may be the app you've been waiting for. Not many tablet apps really allow you to use your tablet to take notes the way you would if you had a piece of paper, but 7notes changes all of that. The utility allows you to take notes using the software keyboard, tapping your finger on the screen and writing with it, or using a stylus that supports capacitive touch-screens. Decorate your notes with illustrations or drawings, and then save it to PDF, email it to yourself for later, or post it to Twitter, Facebook, Evernote, or Dropbox. All of these features-and being one of the first iPad apps that really brings the promise of handwriting on the iPad screen to life-are completely free.
