Unstuck: Turning In Work That’s Stuck in the iPad
Session Description: iPads allow students to create things like collages, puppet shows, drawings, animations, videos, and much more. Without 1:1, getting that work to the teacher can be tricky. In this session we'll explore various options for students to electronically "turn in" their created works using various platforms, web-based solutions, and third-party apps!
What can be Created and Shared?
- Most apps create either a video or image that can be saved to Photos (Camera Roll). Some examples:
- Explain Everything ($)- Narrated whiteboard and thinking canvas- AISD app store: http://tinyurl.com/aisdapps
- Pic Collage- built-in image search makes creating multi-image collages a breeze
- Sock Puppets (paid version has many more options)
- ChatterPix Kids- take/get a pic, draw a line for mouth, make it talk)
- Shadow Puppet Edu (has nothing to do with puppets... or shadows)
- Idea Sketch- simple mind mapping (also MindJet)
- Tellagami EDU- create avatar and give it a voice
- Voice Record Pro- no-frills, rich-featured voice recorder
- Screenshots saved to Photos/Camera Roll (if no native export/save in the app, ex: Number Pieces app)
Sharing without Turning In
Just like not all papers have to be formally graded, not all work must necessarily be "turned in."
Platforms for Sharing/Publishing
- Google Apps/Drive
- TodaysMeet (if created work has a URL): Screenchomp, Haiku Deck, Shadow puppets EDU, etc.
- DropItToMe (uses Teacher’s Dropbox)- renames the files and overwrites
- http://dropitto.me/- This will work for receiving one file at a time. But if multiple students turn in work, they will overwrite each other's work since the images will be named image.jpg or some other generic convention when they come from the Camera Roll.
- http://dbinbox.com/ (won’t overwrite, but can’t password protect)
- LMS such as Canvas
