iPad for Students
Teaching students to see the iPad as their ‘best friend’ in the classroom.
In this first lesson you will see 4 short videos where you will learn more about the Online iPad Course and how it will help you use the iPad at school. You will learn to create contacts and learn some basic brain science. When we know how our brain develops neurons we can actively do things to keep developing them.
Learn how to activate Text-to-Speech with Speak Screen to read eBooks. Learn how to download documents and air-print if you have an air-printer at home.
Learn the basics of Claro PDF
This app can read text to you, you can write or type your answers and also record a note with your own voice. Add photos and drawings to the document with the handy tools.
This lesson will show you the next step in using Claro PDF- to access image PDFs.
Notability is a very useful app! We can use it to record our voice to plan assignments and we don’t need to spell one word. We then can listen to it as many times as we need to as a prompt when we are writing.
You will learn how to record what you know about a topic with your voice- and write ‘annotations’ at the same time. In this lesson we will import a PDF worksheet and then record on top of that with our voice.
Text Prediction is an excellent support tool for writing. Be sure to learn the correct way to use this technology so that your spelling ability is improved as you use it. This lesson offers tutorials in 3 excellent text-prediction apps: Clicker Docs, iWord Q and Docs Plus. There is no need to purchase and learn all 3- just choose one. Our recommendation is Clicker Docs for Year 2-5 and Docs Plus for Year 6+. iWordQ is a more affordable alternative to Clicker Docs.
If we don’t use it- we will lose it! That’s why revision of what we have learned is so important. Let’s go over how we use Notability, Text Prediction and Claro PDF. Practice makes perfect!
Here we will learn how to take a photo of a worksheet, have it scanned, and access it in Claro PDF. We can have it read to us if we need it, and we can write or record our answers!
The more times we do something the less likely we are to forget it. Here we practice using Notability and Text Prediction.
A final opportunity to practice using OCR on a document in Claro PDF.
