Using the ShowMe app on the iPad’s with my class
Welcome back to Term 4 here in New Zealand – only 8 weeks to go before the Christmas break – so much to fit in and such little time to do it.
I am still fizzing from all of the wonderful things I learnt at ULearn in Rotorua.
The ShowMe app on the iPad’s is one I downloaded when it first came out but have not had the time to learn more about it or use it. Some of you might remember the work I did with my class with i-can-animate earlier this year making Numeracy videos to show how to use strategies – some of which are on http://nznumeracy.wikispaces.com. ShowMe makes this video process easy and fun to do. The children picked it up in 10 minutes and made these video’s on our first day back in small groups to “Tune in” to what we know about addition and subtraction. They chose 1 strategy they all knew and made a short How To video which they uploaded through the iPad to the ShowMe website and then we also chose to upload them to youtube and onto our class wiki – http://weareroom1.wikispaces.com
Here are some of the video’s the children made:
Please leave some feedback and leave some links of similar things you have done in your class – I challenge you to put ShowMe in front of your kids and see what they come up with 🙂
