Last month I shared a post about a free iPad app called GoClass that allows you to create and deliver learning activities to your students that are using iPads. GoClass just released some useful updates to their free app.
GoClass is a free iPad application for creating short lessons and delivering them to your students. The lessons can include annotated images, free hand sketches, text, and video. GoClass gives teachers tools for creating class rosters that they can use to keep track of which students are using the lessons when. Teachers also have the option to ask questions and poll their students. After the students’ response have been gathered teachers can project those responses without showing individual student’s names.
Applications for Education
There are two new features of the GoClass app that you should note. First is an option to allow students to “favorite” items that you share. You can see students’ favorite items as a way to see what students think are important aspects of a lesson. The second feature of note is the option to control the sleep mode on students’ iPads.
