This class is reading Macbeth, no easy task for high school students. Where the iPad comes into play is during in-class reading. Where traditionally a class may take turns reading through the paper text and have discussion to clarify, explain and expand on the text, the iPad allows the students & teacher to make notations within the text that the entire class can see when the iPad is projected.
|iPad projected with Good Notes |
- iPad to VGA / HDMI adaptor (to connect to the projector)
- GoodNotes iPad app (allows for notations)
- PDF version of the class reading
The students and teacher are reading from the same PDF version of Macbeth. On the iPad, open the PDF version within the GoodNotes application, project the iPad and begin creating notations.
What is especially helpful about creating notations on the iPad (with or without a stylus) is that all types of notations can be created.
- Highlight text
- Write within the document
- Create drawings / images within the document
