IV) TECH FOR INQUIRY LEARNING

Eg lesson plans/units; videos/podcasts and posts of student examples:

V) GETTING CONTENT OFF OF THE iPADS/FEEDBACK

There is no need to use student emails (it’s optional); you can annotate homework submitted from iPads with text or voice or annotate in another app.  I was able to add text notes and audio notes in the students’ folders.  You can sign up for free accounts. Those wishing to upload iMovies longer than the max 60 seconds in the free accounts might want to embed iMovies into Keynote presentations (using the lowest resolution possible).

SHOWBIE

1.  Getting started with Showbie Video
2. Showbie for Teachers
3.  How to create student accounts video  (As for younger kids, we find that the teacher or IT person sets up the accounts.)
4.  Apps that work with Showbie
5.  How to embed iMovies in Keynote in Showbie video (Showbie allows 60 sec video so if you want longer videos, you have to embed iMovie into Keynote)
6.  How to provide Feedback in Showbie
7.  Marking up assignments in Showbie (I use the Notability app; not Remark to mark up PDF’s)
8.  All the Showbie support Videos are HERE.
