Using an iPad as a teacher. Every day. My daily apps - well some of them My new school are thinking about getting some iPads so I thought i’d repost this page from my blog about using iPad as a teacher. I’ve updated it with a few things as well. I’ve had an iPad 2 since a 2 1/2 hour queue on launch day. Now I loved my iPad 1 and yet iPad 2 has moved its uses further on. Planning Planbook - Who needs paper eh?? Having taught for 10 years I don’t need to plan every lesson to the minute (thankfully). Attendance/Gradebook TeacherPal - Organise your class by where they sit For this I use TeacherPal. Presentations Prezi - Interesting presentations I use both Apple’s Keynote and the Prezi app to do my presentations. Mindmapping iThoughts HD - Mindmapping in class I use iThoughts HD to develop mindmaps in class. Fun stuff Mathemagics - Good fun to show the students I like this app (Mathemagics) and other number games as a break up in lessons or for friday afternoons TED - Show your class some inspirational talks
