Thursday - Transforming Classrooms with iPads

The speakers for this session were using 1:1 classrooms with 1st and 5th graders.  They supplied quite a bit of the applications that they use but I was more interested in how they were utilizing the technology.  They attempted to use iPads as a tool to give students options for creation and reflection.  The majority of the examples that were supplied involved the students creating something using an iPad and then having audio/video tied into the project.  The Audio and/or Video would be for the students to reflect upon what they're doing or on how and why they decided to create the project.

The majority of the applications cost money.  I have only included a few apps onto the Pearl Tree that I've created since I couldn't evaluate them freely.

Those apps used but required purchase:
Apple Pages, Comic Life, Story Kit, Book Creator, eBook Magic, Snapseed, Hipstamatic, SonicPics, Confer

Those apps that were free (and on the Pearl Tree):
Adobe Photoshop Express, Vimeo,, Edmodo, Kidblog, Google Forms, Screen Chomp
