New from TechSmith: Ask3 App for iPad

New from TechSmith: Ask3 App for iPad.

I would recommend taking a look at this blog review of Ask 3. We have several teachers in East Noble School Corporation that are already implementing it.

How one teacher is using it is to record a lesson on the Every Day Math math boxes. There are usually one or two questions on the math boxes that cause the students quite a bit of frustration and require extra attention. By recording them before the math lesson, the teacher is able to field a lot of questions. The students can also replay the video if there is a misunderstanding.  She feels it makes her more efficient as a teacher.

As far as the students actually responding to each other’s questions, that has not happened yet. I will keep you posted as I meet with teachers using the application.


About Lance Yoder

As I was finishing up my seventh year of teaching fourth grade, I was avidly preparing myself for 1:1 technology. Kids were blogging, making videos, presentations, etc. I was ready for the kids to have a device sitting on their desk all day. The position of a technology peer coach came up. Someone to help teachers implement technology in the day-to-day scheme was what was requested. So now I have a full year under my belt as a coach. Sometimes I teach or assist with lessons involving technology. Sometimes I teach kids how to use apps. Sometimes I collaborate with teachers on how they can replace something they used to do to use the devices that are available. Sometimes I feel like I am the tech department. My job has been interesting in the last year and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope to be helpful to you as I bring a few years experience in the classroom as well as one year of heavily becoming a nerd.
