The introduction of new innovative and interactive technology in education has revolutionised the way teachers can engage with their students. From interactive whiteboards to classroom computers, arguably no single piece of equipment has quite as big an impact as iPads for schools.
The functionality and versatility that Apple technology offers the classroom is vast but, to the uninitiated, it may be hard to know which of the hundreds of apps are going to be best to help enhance your lessons.
As a leading supplier of iPads and iPad bundles for schools, JP-UK run through some of the best apps for teachers to download –
Visual aids are a common application of iPads in education and the Keynote app is a great addition. Compatible with projectors and viusualisers, Keynote allows teachers to tailor their presentation documents and teaching notes with animations, pictures, videos and all manner of multimedia magic to keep students engaged and interested.
This application allows you to create multimedia posters containing interactive elements of text, sound, pictures and video. This app can allow students to test their creativity and develop their own ‘multimedia posters’ and help to develop their IT and design skills.
Google Docs is an extremely popular app in both business and education. Aside from the obvious benefit with organisation and transparency of document storage, Google Docs offers an online portal to get students creating, collaborating, and sharing information with each other.
This fantastic app allows teachers to transform their iPad into a wireless remote for their lesson plans and presentations. With multi-functionality available across various platforms, Mobile Air Mouse allows teachers to fully control the visual aids in the classroom with ease to help keep the student’s engaged.
