So I’m rather new to the MTBoS. I’ve been a silent observer for awhile and am so grateful for this 8 week bootcamp to get me into a sustainable schedule of posting. I use an iPad to teach in my classroom (versus the whiteboard, smartboard, or a document camera) and use the app Notability to write on my worksheets. It basically functions as a smartboard, in that what I write on my iPad is projected to the screen. I can use multiple colors, I can type, I can erase, and I can even move around stuff I’ve written. For example, here’s a worksheet from the other day:
What I really like is that since Twitter is installed on my iPad, I can tweet the notes directly from the app. So after class, I just quickly send my notes to Twitter and anyone can access my notes without even needed a Twitter account.
For the most part I like this resource and need to figure out other clever ways of getting more students to check it out. If anyone has done something similar or has other ideas, please do share!
I’ll write an article soon about my iPad + Apple TV + Notability setup so that other can benefit from a really amazing classroom experience!
