This week I was asked by the head of our iPad trial group in school to run a session showing how I use my iPad in my lessons. As many teachers know, it’s one thing to stand up in front of a group of children and teach them, and quite another to standing front of a group of teachers and try and do the same. So to say I was nervous is putting it mildly!
I decided to run through the apps I use the most and give a short demonstration of each one.
The apps I decided to show are ones I have reviewed before, so I have included the links to the relevant blog post below.
I had lots of fun setting up my Socrative quiz, so that all the teachers could compete in teams whilst doing a general knowledge quiz. If you want to try out my quiz (and you have Socrative) then you can use this code to get a copy of the questions. Just click on ‘import quiz’ and type in ‘SOC-594748’
You can see the Keynote presentation I gave by watching this video (I am trying out Vimeo as a place the store my instructional videos, instead of my YouTube channel – so my pupil’s work can be on YouTube).
The slide change overs are quite fast(apologies), they were manual clicks but apparently Keynote makes them very quick when you export it to video!
