  1. You left out the absolute best note-taking app that there is for students to make seamless workflow a possibility. You have GOT to do reviews for this workflow (I know, I know, its not all about workflow-but a good place to start for beginning teachers).

    Schoology > Notability……..BAM…….DONE! >>Throws mic down<<

    They kick Goodreader's, evernote, Penultimate, and Dropbox for student collection of work in the BUTT!
    My district of 10,000 that is 75% 1:1 is jumping on the bandwagon.

    As a pre-service teacher, undertaking an ICT subject and interested in how to use an iPad device to enhance my and my students’ learning, I was very interested in your blog about iPads vs. PCs in Teaching. I suppose it is like a lot of technology, its use is limited by your creativity.

    1. Thanks so much for the comment! Let me know if you have any other questions/ideas for future posts!
