Three "App" Amigos

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The cornerstone of our school's iPad pilot program this year has been three incredible apps. All of our students use Dropbox, eBackpack, and Notabilty. Notability is our note taking app that auto syncs with Dropbox. Students can hand write, type, and audio record notes in Notability. It has also helped our students become better organized. These two apps together make a very powerful tool.

eBackpack has become my teachers best friend. While being paperless wasn't a major goal, eBackpack allows us to use infinitely less paper. Teachers no longer have to stand in line at the copier. Nor do they have to keep up with file folders full of student papers. eBackpack's newest update allows teachers to handout assignments digitally, students can complete assignments and turn them in without ever leaving eBackpack. Finally, teachers can grade assignments (annotating directly on the digital page) and return it without ever leaving eBackpack or printing a single document.

I can't imagine our iPad program without these three apps, and I'd love to share them with other teachers.
