Core iPad Apps

We have a wide variety of apps that appear on the iPads across multiple grade levels that can be used for many different tasks. How do you want to meet your standards?

Student Response System

Socrative is an app that will allow you to use any web-enabled device (Computer, iPad, iPod Touch) as an advanced Clicker. Students can respond to short-answer and multiple choice questions that you generate on the fly or you can develop detailed quizzes mixing both options. Socrative will even send you a graded spreadsheet at the conclusion of the quiz! This can be a great tool for both formative and summative assessments in class.
