My students publish a variety of work on their iPads and use different apps throughout the writing process. When it comes to typing up their final product we often use PaperPort Notes. Before they send their work to print, I use the highlighter and marker tool to show them where edits and revisions need to be made. I write over their work, and send them back to their seats to make changes. The best part is that I can erase my notes once edits are made without losing any of the text on their page!

*great for peer editing too!
I love using apps that foster collaboration in the math classroom. Make your preparation for state exams interactive and engaging with the free Graphs app. Students can answer questions based on bar graphs, line graphs and pie charts. It’s great test prep and a fantastic way to extend or review a unit on statistics and data.

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!
