Get Inspired

Posted on: January 27, 2015

iPad standingA few weeks ago JTRS led an Inspires session to show our learning managers and staff the potential of using iPads in the classroom.

Thanks to Nick Acton’s demonstration we’ve been buying some of the apps he suggested and deploying them onto the iPads for tutors and students in the classroom.

The first one was Book Creator which is a handy app you can use to create booklets/books. You can add text and image, change the background colour and embed sound on them. These would work great for creating note books per course unit for example. It’s a freebie as well but you cannot make as many books!

The second was Decide Now which acts like a wheel spinner for making choices and picking names at random to answer questions.

JTRS also have a website area called JTRStv where you can find out how iPad rollouts have gone in other educational organisations and get tips on apps. Their Learning Inspired blog gives more tips on apps and iPad use in teaching and learning.
