Note: This blog entry is part of a series entitled, iPadifying the Writing Workshop. New blog entries–which continues focusing on the iPad in the Writing Workshop–will begin to appear soon! Stay tuned!
Teacher can record the mini-lesson and post it on class web site (e.g. blog, wiki). This is an ideal tool for field trips or “on the go” recordings where a mobile phone is not desirable.
Students can record a reading of their written piece then email it to the teacher or to other students.
Record audio, then share it via cloud storage (e.g. GoogleDrive, Dropbox) or email it from your iPad.
While iPads are often eschewed as writing machines–often because they do not come with a keyboard–it’s great to imagine that they can be used to “iPadify” the writing workshop process from the teacher’s perspective. This can be a tremendous aid to our work as writing workshop facilitators.
