I am waiting for my iPad minis to arrive....hopefully later this week. I am in a Kindergarten class and am looking for specific K apps that the students can use to create work and present such as Educreations. Any suggestions anyone may have for K apps -gaming, curriculum, research or creating I would the suggestions.

P.S. Charlene, the link is a process through which you can block ALL apps except the one you want a student using.

In our project we're using two things that seem to be working out so far that don't require constant submissions.

The other thing we did was purchase licences for Reflector. It allows us to have an image of all the iPads in the room on a desktop. As long as they are accessing the same wifi, it works great. You can also use the program to project those images so that the whole class can follow what is happening on the tablets. Using those with a whiteboard application or a learning game, you can have one student working the iPad and everyone else watching and participating from their seats.

Always have students present their work to you and the class(peers). It will soon be obvious to you who has done the work you have assigned. Also, students love sharing what they've done and will usually make sure they share their best work. It's a good time for teacher to give feedback to help them grow!

Hi Everybody in IPads in the Classroom group! I am new to iPads. How do you monitor if your students are using the iPads properly? There are no password blocks that you can put on files or apps- is there? So how do you really know if a student is working consistently on an app that you have asked them to work on? How can you block other app use? Or can you? Charlene

Hi Everybody! Just figured out how to join the groups! Our TLLP project will explore the use of phonics based apps to improve reading skills such as word decoding and recognition for struggling readers Grade 2 to 5. Also we hope to improve and change the way we teach these skills. Does anyone out there consistently use any phonics apps in their classrooms? Which ones? I would appreciate any sharing as I am new to iPads. Thanks!

Hey Stacey.  Take a picture of the student work by clicking the power button and home button at the same time.  They can then hand it in through the WEBDAV.  Let me know if it works out.

We are currently in the process of using iPads with the "Ask Everything" application to display student work on the Smart Board with the "Reflector" application. We are still not sure how to have the students save their thinking and then "hand in" their work on the iPad. Our school is Mac based. Any ideas??
