COLLABORATIVE LEARNING & FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT


By Brandon Zoras.

Using the AirPlay feature on the iPad/iPod/iPhone you are able to display the screen of the device onto a computer (mirroring).  If it’s a class set or one single device, you can make lessons more interactive by displaying students work on the projector, pass around the device and have the lesson more interactive.

In my class we use a MacBook, two class iPads and students’ own Apple devices, we are able to collaborate together on one screen through multiple devices.  (You can also use a PC) .   With Notability the work automatically syncs to iCloud and backs up as a PDF to our class website.  Students are able to access a copy of the selected notes from home that we took on Notability on the iPad.  The program AirServer is loaded onto my MacBook which allows me not only to mirror what is on the device screen but also record as well.
