Nearpod is a cool app that many teachers in 1:1 ipad programs are using in their programs to keep screens in sync, assess, and teach. If you have a 1:1 ipad program, you want to test this one.
An excellent find from the folks over at EducatorsTechnology (if you’ve never been there, check it out; their articles are short and addictive).

Great thing to share with Ipad tea hers.
Yes, this is the article. But you know what - if you use the ipad as a doorstop - does it make the classroom better? iPads IN the classroom don’t make it better, I would argue that technology, used properly, can improve achievement. But technology used improperly is like the human voice used improperly -it can harm. Anyway, since this is making the rounds, you might want to take a look.
You can turn your ipad into a virtual you for around $2000. Hook the ipad to it, you can control it, take it up down, etc. The robot has an ipad and the driver has one too. Virtual presence just got within reach for some people who need it including the homebound. Interesting.
This just in: You can now turn your iPad into an actual foosball table for up to 4 players. Thank you New Potato, thank you.
Your iPad can be a foozeball table? College has just been reinvented. :-)
Using iPads to make inferences about our classmates’ backpacks.
Cool. I wonder a bit more about how the iPads are required in this. Photos? Captions?
My Homework for the ipad, droid, iphone is an app that some students are using to organize all of their work. I admit that the layout looks very interesting. I’m going to be testing this with my son when he gets is ipad mini for Christmas.
This teacher wanted ipads instead of MacBooks. Here’s the rationale including that the teacher can better differentiate. Now, the teacher has been using iPads for 3 weeks and captures reflections. This is what a good implementation SHOULD look like. Sadly, the teachers who use them as epaper don’t get to see these sorts of results because they are missing the point. Great read.
iPad students outperform? May I mention that correlation doesn’t prove causation!!! iPads are likely correlated with affluence which is more highly correlated with test scores.
