(Sidenote: Everything mentioned in this article is also possible through gmail from a computer. A gmail address is a prerequisite in both cases.)
As iPads proliferate in schools around the world, and students as well as teachers create more and more content, questions about what to do with all of those learning objects have arisen. In other words, how can webcurate this content into portfolios for assessment as well as reflection.
With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. Everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account and into a “Portfolio” folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers.
The Google Drive app now allows for the creation of Documents, Spreadsheets, and Folders. Plus, the ability to upload photos and videos from the camera roll. WIth many PDF annotation apps such as Notability and Paperport Notes now allowing direct upload to Google Drive, the process of curating student work becomes even easier.
The video tutorial below explains the process of creating, uploading and sharing within the Google Drive app on an iPad.
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
With many of you having personal or classroom iPads, we have had an influx of questions based on apps. I have started compiling lists of apps you might want to consider for classroom use. Some might be familiar, and others might be new to you.
Even if you are working in a one iPad classroom, you may want to consider using apps in a number of ways. Here are some ideas:
Don't forget to use Helpdesk to request apps using the volume purchasing program through the district. All apps purchased in this manner need to be placed on district-owned devices.
Enjoy a beautiful, long weekend! Maybe, if you have time, you can explore some of the app ideas listed below :)
