Math and Technology

I'm linking up with iTeach 1:1 to share what apps my students use during math. In many cases they have a wide selection to chose from. The ones I have decided to highlight here are the ones that they used the most and ones that they will be using in the fall.

Others like iMovie are part of a group of choices that also include PuppetPals, StoryMaker, and Toontastic. They all give students creative license while illustrating a story problem that will later be shared with the whole group. These apps fall into what you could call "Surprisingly Educational Apps."

Towards the end of the year, I started playing with a portfolio type setup for their work but didn't have a way to 1) email it off the iPad and 2) some place to put it. In May, I solved one problem by creating a classroom email account in which students just send me work. They don't have access to it. I have just recently solved my second problem. I needed a place to collect student work that I could easily share with classroom teachers and parents without it being a process or nightmare. All work will either go to Evernote or 3 Ring in the fall. I love that students can email me their work.

Also new for them in the fall, will be CBB or Creative Book Builder. I talk in a previous post how I will get rid of notebooks and students will do that work in CBB instead.

Have a great day blog hoppin'. Happy 4th of July.

  1. Alison,
    I hadn't seen some of these apps.
    I love explain evertyhing. How do you students do with Evernote? Just curious what time frame it takes before the kids pick everything up and just run with it.

    thanks for sharing

  2. I think I lucked out last year-they had a handle on Evernote within a try or two. I have not had any problems with students in other students binders either. My biggest problem was when Explain Everything did an out date and moved things around. That took use some time to figure out again. I have always had someone that "gets it" and the assignment completed before everyone else that I can pass "tech teacher" duties on too! Thanks for stopping by.
