creating their own movies has been incredibly motivating for the
students. Having the students create their own movies, explaining
concepts to others is very motivating, and reinforcing. Not to
mention, experimentally, the students have learned as much on their own
as if I had simply lectured them. (But, it takes a lot of directing to
get them to those conclusions; thus I'm often in the role of
fascilitator rather than lecturer.)
Colston Hillman's Apps
Life cards...... Kids use it to make reports. They can use the
camera to take pictures of things and then write about them. The end
result can be in newspaper format or any other format you like.
Splashtop....... This app allows me to control my main classroom computer and promethian from my iPad any where in the room.
With this app I make spread sheets with vocab words and definitions in
google docs and then have them uploaded to the iPads in a multiple
choice format. The kids use it to review vocab and seem to like it.

iTalk - I can record students speech and play back for them so they can hear their errors.
slp is a great resource because you have articulation cards with all
consonant sounds on the iPad so instead of having to sort through or
carry around several decks of cards you can just go to the app, touch
the sound and position you want, and slide through the cards on there.
Teacher or student makes determination if the production was correct or
not. Great for monitoring their own speech!Kristen Sampson - Rushford Elem.
I use this when students are done with a math assignment and we have a
little extra time. I quizzes them on their facts and they can choose
how hard the facts are. After they are done they take a picture of
their score and email it to me.
Socrative- This isn't an app as much as it is a website. I added
it to the main screen of the ipads so the students use it as an app.
Their exit ticket is easy to prepare and the website emails you an excel
sheet with the students results.
showme- This app works like a whiteboard but students can record
their work. I like that I can give them a word problem and then as
they talk to figure out the problem I can hear how they are problem
