iPad Formative Assessment

Standard

So, I’ve been using my ipad pretty much every day. I mainly use it as a sort of mobile document camera, snapping pictures as I walk around. I usually then project the work on the board and ask students to explain it for the class. This gives me a chance to ask some good questions like: “Why did you multiply by 99 instead of 100?” “Is there really a force pushing on he ball?” “If your rule is +2 every step, how many will there be in the 73rd step?” Sometimes we spot mistakes, sometimes I purposefully get two pics to compare, sometimes we are surprised by different methods, always good learning happens! I’ve got hundreds of these now:

    I love this. What do you use to display the work on the board? Apple TV or a program? I’m frustrated that the projector in my room doesn’t have an HDMI port, and the wifi in my part of the building is spotty…so Apple TV is kind of ruled out.
