This course will cover a range of tools that provide essential functionality for teachers if they are to be confident in facilitating lessons in an iPad classroom:
- Send and receive files. Box.com is best for collaboration and fine tuning interactions between teachers and students.
- Create quizzes and surveys. Google forms can enable teachers to keep up to date in real time with how students are performing in classwork
- Delivering material in a predefined sequence. NearPod. There are times that teachers wish to deliver content in a definite sequence, and not have students racing ahead or falling behind in class. NearPod achieves this by controlling what the students can see and do. Teachers can deliver PowerPoints or Keynote slides, multimedia, quizzes, receive answers to open ended questions, and even have students draw and submit pictures.
