The Answer Pad is an amazing web solution/iPad app that has to be seen to be believed. The Answer pad is a graphically-based student response system that is free for educators (1 teacher - per 36 students) which allows educators to assess students learning in real-time. This is done through an innovative web user interface that interacts w/ a mobile device (ie, iPad). Teachers can either use a number of templates or create their own and push them out to their student devices. What makes this such an effective teaching tool is that educators can draw on existing templates to modify to their own needs and use these in any subject. For example, a teacher can upload a bar graph and have student draw notes, or upload a grid and have students plot data, the possibilities are endless. The ability for a teacher to annotate or draw on template/image is great for Guided Learning.
Another great way to use Answer Pad to assess student's learning is by the different Q/A type that a teacher can apply, such as: multiple choice, T/F, etc. Soon teachers will be able to record Answer Pad sessions, mark up student responses, and more.
Answer Pad is a wonderful tool for mobile learning, flipping a classroom, and differentiated instruction. I highly recommend checking it out by clicking here!!!
