As our teachers are discovering, having 1:1 iPads affords many creative approaches to instruction.
In Social Studies AP Human Geography, our teachers are trying out the use of Zapd, a free app that allows students to instantly create a blog site via their iPad. As students study natural hazards, they create an instant blog to share the information they locate.
In French, students use the iPad's video camera to tape and share skits that they have created.
In American Sign Language, students are using Keynote to create presentations. The versatility of Keynote allows them to embed images and text, but also video of themselves signing. Students created the video below, sharing tips on using Keynote for other teachers, using the iPad's camera.
Apps can also be used by students to create their own "texts" or ePub documents with embedded images and video. Some excellent resources for creative app use in the classroom can be found on the Tech Chef's website. Check out our APPS page for more links and app recommendations to explore more of the creative possibilities the iPad offers.
