Noteshelf syncs with the major cloud services. Evernote Dropbox Google Drive Feel the joy of writing. Let your thoughts flow as you write through the most fluid digital note-taking app. Nothing has felt so natural ever but Noteshelf.
The amazing array of handwritten marks, numbers and codes in different coloured pens were almost like a work of art.
Unfortunately for me two of my greatest weaknesses are record keeping on paper, and filing paper. As a result I started my quest for a digital solution. I even bought my ancient PDA out of retirement for a term.
In desperation I started looking into writing my own app.
Luckily for me, this is when I stumbled across iDoceo. It can do pretty much everything touch and write app for ipad make the tea at break time. This provides you with a way to back up your mark book, and also allows you to attach links of files you might use in your lessons to the calendar part of the app.
For example, if I have my lesson objective slide sitting in Google Drive, I can link it through to that particular lesson in the iDoceo planner.
For a start, you can import your class as an Excel file. This was a simple process. Once the class are in you can import a photo of the class and iDoceo will use facial recognition to pick out the faces which you can then assign to each student by drag and drop.
This is so much easier than having to import individual photos of each student 20 plus times. Seating plan with bulk imported photos Once your class has been imported you can then use the seating plan part of the mark book to assign seats to students.
They can see their face and name and they know exactly where to sit.
If you need to change anything, you can drag and drop students to different seats. This is a huge help, especially at the start of the year when you are trying to learn a couple of hundred new names.
One of the other features of the seating plan is the random name picker. You can press a button and iDoceo will cycle through the students on the seating plan roulette style and pick one at random. This is certainly a good way to get them concentrating in a Q and A session.
The actual mark book itself is extremely elegant to operate which is a massive help in the middle of a busy lesson. You can set up pretty much any parameters for your marks, from icons, phrases, numbers, colours or a combination of both.
I have mine set to automatic colour codes depending on what numerical grade I give them for the lesson. This creates a quick way to see if your students have understood what you taught them in the lesson.
As well as being able to set pretty much any mark parameters, iDoceo has a very handy annotations feature. No more am I faffing about with loads of sheets of paper!
Entering marking criteria iDoceo seems to be one of those rare apps that has been designed by a teacher. I purchased iDoceo with my own hard earned cash. I'm on a daily mission to use, and learn to use technology in the most creative, innovative and transformational ways.
The iPad ticks all of these boxes. My geekery also extends to a passion for cricket, amateur astronomy, video gaming and bad guitar playing.
