Here are some iPad apps I presented on 2/17
Goodnotes: I LOVE this app! Many of the note-taking apps look horrible when I try to write on them. And if I use the typing ones, I find that I quickly fall behind. This allows you to instantly zoom in so you can write clearly. I know it is a small detail, but for a lefty, that is HUGE!
iAnnotate PDF: I use this for grading student work. You can have them place their email address in the document you are grading and immediately send the work back to them. It allows you to write on PDFs as well as record voiceovers. You can also broadcast in real time through your projector.
Mobile Mouse: While this app did cost me $2.99, I think I might have purchased it for $5. Lets your iPad take control of your computer. If moving around the room is useful for you, this might be the app for you.
Workflowy: This app allows you to quickly organize thoughts and ideas.
Google Drive: You can view the documents you’ve created on Google Drive.
iA Writer: This app is a great app for writing. It optimizes the keyboard so that it speeds up the writing process.
Penultimate: This is another note taking app.
Skriv: This app is a note taking app with a built in web browser.
TED: Presents talks from some of the worlds most fascinating people.
iTunesU: The free iTunes U app gives you access to the world’s largest online catalog of free education content from leading institutions — on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
Mindjet Maps: This app lets you easily enter ideas, tasks, and meeting notes into intuitive visual maps that help you quickly organize concepts and prioritize action items. Instantly create new maps or import them from Mindjet Connect.
ShowMe: This app allows you to create voiceover whiteboard tutorials to save online.
Wikipanion: A Wikipedia engine.
Prezi: An awesome presentation app that allows students to create PowerPoints on steroids. Imagine having a single piece of paper on which you could store and infinite amount of information. That is prezi.
GoodReader: A powerful app for annotating PDFs, this app has many uses for engaging with texts actively. I find the legion of options rather cumbersome so I am on the looking for a similar, but simpler, app for text annotation.
Instapaper: A great app for simply saving articles and documents offline in case any wireless network problems ensue.
Snapseed: Currently free, this is a great app to edit photos in a variety of ways.
Socrative: A great app for creating a variety of quizzes for instant formative or summative assessment.
Keynote: Effectively Apple’s PowerPoint, it is a nice smooth app that facilitates some lovely presentations. Similar to PowerPoint, it does take some time to get to grips with.
CloudOn: A free app that provides the opportunity to create Microsoft documents for those who wish to use the familiar tools of the likes of Word or PowerPoint.
