The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

We now have a few new "iPad Teachers" at our school. Since they were so excited and ready to get busy with their new teaching/productivity tool, I quickly typed up a list of my most used apps for daily productivity to share with each of them. Last June when I purchased my first iPad I slowly discovered all the ways it could help me be more organized, have information at any time and place I needed, and be an excellent teaching tool for planning, assessment, and student interactions. After reviewing my list, if any of you have a favorite I have not discovered, please share. I have put many, many, many apps to the test and there are thousands I have not tested.

Great list of apps - I will certainly add to my school division lists found at http://psdtechpd.wikispaces.com. I have app lists for early years, middle years, high school students and admin for iDevices. I also have started a Blackberry App list recently.

eclicker is a great data tracking app!  I am assuming you are looking for upper grades?  I have an app out MyIphonicsCVC that teaches students to read using a phonetic based approach.  But for upper grades I REALLY recommend eclicker!! Also.. are you using evernote?  I'll keep thinking of some more.

I teach 4th grade math...the best grade and subject! Most of my students are 9 or 10 years old, but I also have a couple 11 years olds.

Catch up or recovery?

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
