I went to iTunes last night to check out the Math and Reading programs I mentioned yesterday. I found two more by SAS that I downloaded last night. One is SAS data notebook which looks like the kids can create notebooks for class including a table of contents and the other is SAS flash cards. Tonight I am going to download the two elementary apps and will report back on Monday. It should be a fun weekend.
There was one more app by that company I plan to check out. It states it supports paperless workflow and I would like to see if it works as advertized. Once I see how the notebook, flashcards and gloss work, I can determine if I can effectively use them in the classroom. Since I teach math, the kids generate quite a bit of paper. It indicates that in one program the kids can do the work in a pdf and send it off but I'm wondering if I can grade it in pdf and send it back. So that is one aspect I will be exploring. Gives me some things to think about.
I just read about a survey done that indicates math classes tend to use technology a bit more than the other subjects. I found it quite interesting.
