Instructional Ideas

  1. For any written assignment, from a brief journal entry to a lengthy research paper, teachers can have students compose their assignment using this app and then email for grading once they are finished.
  2. Math and science teachers can have students create a spreadsheet for recording quantitative data. Students will be able to represent that data as a figure (e.g., graph and/or chart). Teachers can then have students create a .doc file and import their figure. Finally, students can compose a paragraph that explains their data, as represented by the figure. Students can submit their work by emailing it to their teacher or posting it to a class website.
  3. Teachers can use this app for a writing workshop. To do so, teachers must first assign students a writing assignment. Next, students will complete a first draft of the writing assignment. At this point, students will enable the “track changes” feature and then swap devices with a classmate. (The “track changes” feature is available under the “Review” option in the menu bar, and it require students to tap “Enter Revise Mode.”) Now, the classmate will be able to proofread the paper and make corrections when needed. Once the classmate finished reviewing the paper, he/she is to return the device to the student who composed the writing, and that student can use the track changes to generate another draft.
  4. After students complete an assignment, they can use this app to quickly post it to a class website, save it to their cloud, or email it to their teacher for grading. All of these options are available under the “File” menu using the “Share” option.
