I am planning to take a workshop in the holidays that highlights the use of iPads within the maths programme.

 I am very keen to hear from all of you about what is working well, at what levels and why?  

I myself have had recent success with the show me app.  Students will use this app to reconsolidate learning independently by recording their WALT and strategies used to achieve success.  

 It is an excellent way to gather evidennce of learning through the students writing, retell being written and steps verbally recorded, as well as photos taken and recorded if materials are used to problem solve.  This can then be emailed to the teacher or uploaded to the class blog page. 

I look forward to you sharing some of your success stories of what apps are being used within your maths programme.

    Jasmine I've also started using 'Show me' I record a teaching strategy before I teach it and then after I've taught the lesson it's available for consoldating by the group.  It's an even better idea of yours to get the students to demonstrate their understanding.  Hmm I might try it out to record a Gloss Test as it's hard to set time aside during class time to work through a Gloss assessment.  That way I could analyse it when I have quiet down time but yet to try out this idea.
