So Many Apps

It seems like every workshop or conference that I go to, someone has 3 or 4 apps for the iPad and/or Android platform that they just can't live without.

This past June, Connie and I and another friend, Carol, were able to attend an amazing technology conference in San Antonio: ISTE, 2013! If you ever get the chance to go, it is worth every penny!

We had some awesome sessions. In this post I will share a few apps and how to use them in the classroom. Watch for a later post that will share some great websites and other technology tools for your classroom!

Dropbox - First 2 GB free. Sometimes your phone provider will have more available for free when renewing your phone contract. Access and share your photos, docs and videos from any device.

CloudOn - brings Microsoft Office to your iPhone and iPad and links it to Dropbox, GoogleDrive, Box, SkyDrive. Free version and a purchased version. Use Microsoft Word, Excel, and Power Point on your iPhone and iPad to create, review and edit documents.

lino it - online stickie service that offers stickies and canvases. You can post, see and peel off stickies on canvases. Post memos, pictures and videos you take with your iPhone, an even files as stickies on a canvas. Set due dates on your stickies and receive a an Email reminder on the morning of the due date. Stickies with due dates can be viewed in Google Calendar or Outlook.
     Classroom use:
          Make a bulletin board for students
          Students can post reminders for homework, projects, etc.
          Post questions to review
          Put on links for students to access
          Assign projects with directions - great for research projects
          Post a question, students post a response...then have students go back a few days later and responds to someone's post
           Post a short video clip and ask students to watch and post a response
           Build a collage of historical photos, students caption them, why important
           Post a picture and ask student to identify
           Write one word that describes a literary or historical character and an example of when that one word description was evident
           Students can post short book reviews/teasers
           Use this with teachers: have them post ideas, reviews, etc for iPad apps, books, videos, etc.

Class Dojo - great online and iPad app for classroom management
