Organizational Apps in the Classroom

|

Today I’m going to share apps to keep you organized.

If you’re super organized, like me, then you probably have many binders full of lesson plans, activities, games, etc.  But I’ve noticed recently that I’m not adding much to my binders anymore because most everything is stored on my computer in files.  

But I also find that I still want to keep examples of projects that I can pull out whenever needed to show students.
I’ve also been searching for a way to store and organize teaching ideas and thoughts.

I’ve found the answer in the form of a free iPad app called ‘Penultimate’.

It’s a storage spot for digital notebooks right on your iPad.  This app functions a bit like Pinterest but with more space to keep things you want.

Here’s what mine look like:

On each page you can insert pictures and images (already saved to your ‘camera roll’), you can take photos on the spot and insert them and you can write and draw on anything on the page.

This page will help me prep for, set up and do this Valentines quilling project next year.

So for the Valentine’s project above, I made sure to note what materials must be prepped and used for this project.  

I can also take pictures of the final product and use them each year to show students.

The one feature I’m waiting for this app to include is the ability to import a document into the notebook.  I think this would make it very easy for a teacher to walk around during a lesson and take quick, observational notes.

Go check it out because I guarantee you will find some use for it and I would love to hear about what you do with it.
