GoClass - Create and Deliver Lessons on iPads

This morning, through David Kapuler, I learned about a similar free iPad application called GoClass. GoClass is a free iPad application for creating short lessons and delivering them to your students. The lessons can include annotated images, free hand sketches, text, and video. GoClass gives teachers tools for creating class rosters that they can use to keep track of which students are using the lessons when. Teachers also have the option to ask questions and poll their students. Applications for EducationGoClass is a promising iPad app for teachers who are working in 1:1 iPad environments.

I generally use my free Dropbox account to upload PDF versions of documents to “the cloud,” then download them to my iPad with the free Dropbox iPad app to open them first in DropBox. I love how iAnnotate PDF supports highlighting, adding notes to pages, and also freehand writing. Technology with Intention. English iPad Apps.

Explain Everything

I was introduced to it yesterday by a very cool librarian at the ASLA Conference (Australian School Librarian Association). This app allows you to create and record live screen action. This would be brilliant for tutorials or how-to clips for staff or students. If you have an iPad classroom then this will be great for you. I can wait to let my kids lose with this app. The possibilities of this tool are endless and I came straight home and purchased a copy - $2.99 AU. Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations.

Use Air Sketch with Dropbox for Wireless iPad Presentations. Many times I find myself in a situation where I want to do a presentation with the ability to stay mobile and move around the room, but I don’t have access to install software on the computer.

Use Air Sketch with Dropbox for Wireless iPad Presentations

Many remote apps have a small footprint, but even if you do have access to install something on the computer it can very easily stutter and interrupt the flow of your presentation if the network isn’t running perfectly. I found a better solution - one that I feel safe enough to depend on when I am being evaluated and need everything to work smoothly. The nice thing about Air Sketch is that all the action happens on your iPad and it sends updates wirelessly to the browser(s) for the computer to send to the projector. This gives you much smoother feedback as you are drawing directly on the iPad and seeing immediate feedback and responsiveness.
