If I told you that you only needed four great apps and a few time saving tips, would you take that leap into the PAPERLESS world in your classroom? What if you had no more LOST papers or the "I TURNED IT IN!" excuse...Would that change your mind?
I love my paperless classroom for so many reasons...let me count the ways!
#3 I don't hand out papers to anyone. I send all assignments via AIRDROP on my iPad. THIS SAVES SO MUCH TIME! Just like your photos, any graphic organizer, can be saved as an image. Select it and then tap on the airdrop symbol and tap on nearby iPads. So simple and easy that my third graders can do this when I am ABSENT from school!
So...the #1 reason I love my PAPERLESS classroom is my students have more time to learn and we get more instruction, acquisition, and reflection on a daily basis. BOTTOM LINE. I can teach more vocabulary because they understand the basic six words I am required to cover because we use the app Pic Collage. I can look at their project with labels and KNOW they truly grasp the words. The immediate feedback that technology can give my students is remarkable. It is a true game-changer in the classroom. I can tell in four problems on a math app if they understand the concept or not and then we can move on. That means we have more time for ABOVE and BEYOND.
