Mobile App Monday
Here are two easy-to-use whiteboard apps for the iPad: Doodle Buddy and Whiteboard - Nothing more, Nothing less. Whiteboard apps are the perfect tools for students to share what they know with others.
Doodle Buddy - is a free drawing app. It's a great tool for students to take notes and share information. They can add a background image and write or draw over the image explaining what it is or what the object in the image does. This app includes 4 font styles and the ability to resize the text. Draw tools are also available to make it easier for students to highlight or emphasize what is important. The completed activity will save to the ipad's photo album. From there students can quickly move the file to their Google Drive.
Whiteboard - Nothing more, Nothing less - is a super simple, free whiteboard app. This app is great for taking notes, brainstorming ideas, sharing the steps of your math problems, labeling an object, or drawing the perfect play. This app is so cool is can be used in the classroom, on the field, or in the gym. Backgrounds included are various sizes of graph paper, football field, soccer field, basketball court, or add your own image. The pen tool comes in three different sizes and a variety of colors. You can write with just one finger. To erase what you've written or drawn, touch two fingers gently to the ipad. A three-finger touch clears the entire screen. The completed activity will save to the ipad's photo album. If you're using the app on your iphone, just shake the phone to save. From the photo album students can quickly move the file to their Google Drive.
Next Monday, we'll share three interactive whiteboard apps that also allow students to record their voice and what they are drawing.
