Apps are fun and motivating for students! Learn about 4 of what we consider to be the most powerful and easy to use iPad apps. These apps will provide learners with opportunities to practice essential skills for oral language development, print representation and storytelling skills. Use Explain Everything, by taking a picture of student work and have students share their thinking. See how you can use the app, Tell About, to provide a prompt to think and talk about. Celebrate student created artwork using Draw and Tell and capture student imagination and representations. Use Book Creator, to allow students to add audio, images and video to their stories. Celebrate and share student achievement in real and authentic ways using technology on class blogs, twitter accounts and via email. These apps are not only fun, they are engaging and will provide you with authentic documentation of your students’ learning.   Let’s get students talking, explaining, creating and documenting their own learning!
