Patterns of Interaction (WHI/WHII). They also have one for US history called The Americans and Understanding Government. At last count, approval of the entire process involved seven people from my county (beyond me) and a host from Houghton Mifflin Hartcourt as we are not only getting the e-book, but a class set of iPads. I hope my students love using both as it has become the most asked question in my class.
- Finally the iPads are on the way and so for the past few weeks I have been working on my iPad techniques (and consulting with my nine year old son) and have come up with this iPad help sheet. It goes into what I think are all the quick tricks my students will need to do basic operations.
- But I also have also had to figure out work arounds since my kids and I are married to Google Drive. So for that I am using Doceri which does not require a login/password and can connect to Google Drive (see my sheet for how to do so). I will be using it for presentations by the kids (it does add an oral component that Google Presentations does not have - although we have done using Screencastomatic). I will also be using it for map making (we do ones on each unit). Since the free version does not have a keyboard I will make an image with the names of each place I want marked and put a number by each and the students will have to only label their maps.
- For those who want a presentation mode that does has a keyboard and an oral component (but does require a login/password), you can use Educreations.
- How to use Remind101 for student reminders is also included
- Since the iPad pilot will last two months, I will be continually updating my iPad e-sheet so you might want to bookmark it. I am also doing an in-service today for the social studies teachers at Chantilly High School so imagine I will pick up some new tips there as well.
