Built-in iPad features
Very little iPad knowledge needed
For many curriculum subjects, practical assessments are the best way of comprehending progress. Subjects like music, drama and PE are driven by practical activities. On top of that, there are many practices that require practical assessments such as, reading comprehension, speaking different languages and science projects. The iPad is the best tool available to help learners capture their own progress and share self-assessments with their teacher.
Using the app can enable pupils to read aloud to their teacher or record their progress in french speaking. In order to assess more nuanced activities, the iPad has built in ‘screen recording’ capabilities. The iPad screen can be recorded as the learner navigates from one app to the next. On top of this, the microphone can be switched on, so that they can explain their work as they move around the device.
Sharing capabilities then enable the learner to easily send their work directly to their teacher. Self-assessments are standard practice within Education. The iPad can help schools to continue that practice from a distance.
