The other day I got an update for my subtext and it states it now does pdf files. This is a huge jump for me in that it allows me to scan a copy of work into a pdf file to use in the classroom. I have several books on activities that can be done in a center and this application will allow me to use these activities so I do not use as much paper as I normally do. I see it as a way of cutting down on students loosing their work and its there if a student is absent. I can also assign them a worksheet via this program so they work a few problems and turn it in.
I am still working on getting some activities using subtext ready for the next school year. I have a web page with questions and a video attached to the reading. I am thinking of having a few problems associated with the reading so students can practice what they just learned. In the mean time I have a couple programs I am going to test to make a podcast type presentation to go with the material. I hope to start with those on Monday so I can report back.
Once school begins, I can let you know who it all works out. We all know that what we hope happens does not always happen.
