This post is about 10 excellent ways for teachers to use iPads. As for the iPad, I have been looking for ways to justify purchasing one and this article certainly offers some reasons. My three favorites listed are the Evernote, Goodreader, and Pages. Evernote and Pages have some similarities as a word processor, but it appears (from the Evernote link) that Evernote makes lesson plans and other note taking tasks and organizes/formats them in much simpler fashion. For example, sometimes it’s a pain when you bullet items in a word processor and then try to go back and add another bullet, and so on. Word offers a Notebook feature that makes note taking formatting much simpler, but an iPad with Evernote is even more portable than a laptop with Notebook. Goodreader – wow! As a doctoral student working on a dissertation proposal, Goodreader would make life much better. You can store your the many, many, many journal articles and read them on the iPad, which is much larger than most Kindles. As an added bonus, you can help save trees by not printing so many pages.
On a side note, the article link also includes a video about using Facebook in the classrom. That video was really interesting… it might deserve its own post?!
