5 Recommended iPad Screensharing Apps
The iPad is supposed to make teaching and learning easier, right? But if you’ve ever tried to talk your mom through a new task on her computer or iPad without being able to show her what you’re doing, you can understand that some frustration might ensue as you try to get an entire class to follow along with you.

Creating Screencasts on an iPad It's been a while since I have added to my blog, and I thought it was about time for an entry. (I have not taught in over a week due to Hurricane Sandy. Perhaps blogging might help prevent my brain from turning to mush.) I have been exploring some additional tools for creating screencasts & "flipping my classroom". I have an ipad and writing on an ipad is easy. It is an app called "Explain Everything". So, I have some ideas for some future topics for my blog. Flipping the Classroom - Yes, No, or SometimesWhat is Math to Me vs What is Math to Parents/StudentsStandardized Tests & What Colleges WantYouTube for Schools - Accessing YouTube even if your school filters it outGathering student work using dropitto.meAssessing Standards for Statistics with Census at School Last, I have continued to post TI-NSpire Quick Tips to my YouTube channel at mathteacher24. Hopefully, I will post to my blog a bit more frequently.

Google spreadsheets, now with Discussions Posted by Patrick Donelan, Software Engineer (Cross-posted from the Google Drive blog.) Getting things done with others would be much easier if everyone was sitting right next to you. But since that’s rarely the case, we’re always updating Google Drive to make it easier to collaborate with others, no matter where you are or who you’re with. Today we’re bringing the discussion functionality that’s already in documents and presentations to spreadsheets. The total number of comments are also tallied up at the bottom of the screen on the sheet tab, and hovering over the comment icon shows all the comments on that sheet. And just like you’re used to with comments elsewhere, you can +mention someone to automatically include them in a discussion and send them a notification via email – and they can even reply to the comment without leaving their inbox. Any comments that were created in spreadsheets before today are still available and saved as “Notes”.

Comment enregistrer l'écran d'un iPhone ou d'un iPad ? (Mis à jour en décembre 2015) Depuis 2012 les manières de faire une capture vidéo d’un écran iPhone ou iPad ont pas mal changées. L’option la plus connue à l’époque pour enregistrer une vidéo de votre device iOS était d’utiliser le simulateur iPhone ou iPad de votre Mac.

Dropbox Lets You Switch Between Accounts Without Logging Out 3 December '12, 09:46pm Follow Dropbox has earned its place as a powerful productivity tool among individuals and teams, but in playing two roles, many Dropbox users are now stuck with two separate accounts, forced to constantly log in and out. Now, to ease the experience for users bound to a teams and a personal account, Dropbox has added the ability to easily switch between the two without ever logging out (Google-style). It’s noteworthy that this feature will not affect Dropbox users that own two separate personal accounts. If you’re a team player, simply log into Dropbox, click your name in the top right corner, select ”Switch Accounts,” and sign into your second Dropbox account. Of course, offering this feature to holders of multiple personal accounts would be great too, but that move could also undermine Dropbox’s monetization strategy by making it easy for users to link free storage together. ➤ Dropbox for Teams Image credit: Siri Stafford / Thinkstock

How To Capture And Record An iPhone Or iPad Screen Video? You’re ready to create an iPhone app promo video for your upcoming app? Or maybe you’d like to display a video inside an iPhone on your app website? Sometimes the only way to show how your app works is to actually record what’s going on and capture the iPhone screen as a video. You can then use the video as it is or go further and showcase it in an animated video to give a feeling of “real-life” usage. Althought it might get a little technical, I feel like this info is all spread up everywhere as new solutions were created and I believe it’s a good idea to do a wrap-up. Option 1: Using the iPhone or iPad simulator on your Mac The most known (maybe because it was the first one) way to do a screencast of an app is probably to use the iPhone/iPad simulator on your Mac, while recording your screen with a tool like ScreenFlow, Camtasia Studio, iShowU, or Jing. Option 2: Record directly from your iPhone or iPad This one will require you to jailbreak your iPhone. Display recorder on iPhone 4S
