That is all there is to it if I am going to continue to work as mild moderate and multi intensive teacher, I need to have a least one more teacher to work with me. As a result, I will be starting with an app that I had used in the past when I decided to leave for four days and go to a convention. Sh. . . I didn’t tell the administration, I just took time off.
The app is called Show Me Interactive Whiteboard by Learnbat, Inc. It worked well! Also, to writing out what I wanted to accomplish, I was able to complete a video and attach them to the lesson. I will be doing that this time as well. The only problem that I am running into is that the I need to figure out how to show it onto the smart board.
This post is not a sponsored post; I am not receiving any compensation for the app or its promotion. I just like the app. Here is a link to the website: http://www.showme.com/
Show Me Interactive Whiteboard is fantastic. I don’t remember if I paid for the ShowMe app because it was an app I was trying out for the company. However, at this point, if you want all of the features it costs $5.99 a month, but to get it initially, it is a free app and does give you a lot of features. ShowMe allows you to record voice-over whiteboard tutorials and share them online. It’s an amazingly simple app that anyone can use, no matter how young or old!
The app was great in setting up a class lesson for the students while I was gone. The substitute provided information for her when she was unsure about how to process an experience for the students. She would put the iPad on the table for the student to watch, while she had the materials in place. Also, I recorded the routines and rituals for the classroom and a complete set up for the classroom management system.
What I liked was that I could easily edit the material on the app. After I returned I update the class lists, the classroom management, the individual behavioral plans and the lessons as they progressed. I also used the app for centers and other small groups when the paras were absent.
All in all, I like the app and use it regularly. I do encourage its use. Finally, I have never paid for the upgrade, not that I remember but for those of you who have larger iPads it might be something to consider.
