So I thought, hey I have already placed these Powerpoints in my Dropbox. I will just have the kids go through the slide show on the iPads. WRONG!!
The slides did not all format correctly, by just opening them from Dropbox. So I had to do some thinking…I knew there must be a way to do this.
Enter Slideshark app!! I downloaded this free (doesn’t that word free make you happy?) app and now my Powerpoints are accessible and formatted correctly. This makes me soooo happy! I will be able to differentiate my students learning so much more now.
Instead of everyone having to practice the same list and take turns, I can now direct them to the list most appropriate for them and they will practice all the words!!! Yay for Technology!!
My slides now can be utilized in so many different ways…on the Smartboard, on computers, printing them off into books to be sent home for practice…And now on my iPads!
I love learning about how technology can enhance teaching, not just be a tool for playing games. I have been inspired by Aylin’s technology posts over at Learning to the Core. She and Amanda have a great blog with lots of technology tips!
