Show and Explain Your Work


Many people think that an iPad is just for games but I can ensure you that this teaching tool is used effectively in my classroom.  I love having students show their work on a whiteboard app (and sometimes they connect their screens to work together).  Students in my class not only solve problems on their iPads but they take screenshots of their work and email the picture with an explanation of how they solved the problem.  This process is quicker than it sounds with a little practice.  It’s a great way to gather work for tech-friendly bulletin boards!

    Here is a blog-post Zack came across that discusses how students can use the whiteboard app to show and explain their work. Simple and easy way to integrate technology. Also, it requires much more thinking than playing a skill and drill app.
