Along with the traditional route of writing papers, quizzes, and tests students now have another method to demonstrate their understanding of a topic by using a free APP on their iPAD. What is the free APP? It is called ShowMe. This APP allows students to record their voice, add pictures, and provide a range of colors to highlight and demonstrate the knowledge they have gained from a particular lesson or unit. Check out the ShowMe short videos created by Ms. Mullen's AVID class who recently studied Shakespeare's Macbeth. Click here to see them. This is the first time the students used the ShowMe APP. Think of ShowMe as transforming the iPAD into an interactive whiteboard, a recorder, and an image storage site. The excitement is in how the students combine those three elements. I invite you to click here to see the different ShowMe videos.
