Applications we use on the iPads in Class

Schoology: We use this to organize class materials, assignments and assessments. Each day's agenda is listed under updates and all information is posted in materials

Playposit: Students watch a video and answer questions along the way. The student can rewind the video until it asks a question.  The answers are graded out of 5 points. Click here to try Playposit

Screen casting Apps: Learners can choose to use one of the following apps to record themselves explain how you know specific information.  ExplainEverything is a paid app given to them by the district.  Educreation and ShowMe are free apps.
