A few great ios apps.


Super short post to share a list of my favourite ios apps for Teaching and Learning.  As you will see from the list, I prefer apps that let us create and share our thinking, rather than apps that focus on content.

  • Google Drive – create, store, access, and share docs, presentations, forms, spreadsheets, drawings…, can also be used by students to keep track of research or as a digital portfolio
  • Evernote – my preferred tool for colecting and housing assessment data, can also be used by students to keep track of research or as a digital portfolio
  • Snapguide – create how-to’s, stories, etc… imagination required to harness all the potential
  • Checkthis – simple way to publish and share ideas and work
  • Educreations – Interactive Whiteboard tool that lets you record your voice as you write
  • Note Anytime – easily anotate anything
  • Dropbox – an easy way to get content on and off an ipad
  • Dragon Dictation – great tool for pre-writers to write!, best used in conjunction with other apps
  • Prezi – another tool for presentations, having a variety of choices lessons possibility of death-by-powerpoint
  • VoiceThread – nice tool to share work and a great venue for students and teachers to engage in the feedbcack process
  • Videolicious – make short videos easily!
  • Twitter – great tool for writing, sharing, learning, connecting, giving and receiving feedack
