iPad apps to synchronize your class & school

Recently I was asked to present a few useful apps to teachers. I had the privilege of doing this presentation at the Apple Store in SoHo (Manhattan).

Apple is running a monthly series of Apple Store workshops for New York City educators. They want, of course, for the NYCDOE to buy iPads, in large volume. However, they are also offering great support and professional development on best practices through these workshops. Each workshop features Apple presenters on the basics of use, as well as NYC educators presenting apps they currently use in their school/classroom.

For the kick-off event in April, I was asked to present how I use iPads to wirelessly synchronize content and to connect to the Smartboard. This presentation was based on my previous blog post regarding my favorite everyday apps.

This Keynote presentation is also available on, Apple's hosting site for publishing content created within the Apple suite of products.

Apps discussed:
Remoter - $0.99
Dropbox - $-free
PlainText - $-free for basic version (ad supported) $4.99 for full version
GoodReader $4.99

Drobbox companion:

I'm looking forward to attending the ongoing DOE iPad events, some as presenter, some as attendee. Hearing from colleagues is the best way to learn and I am looking forward to learning from others inside the DOE how they best use their iPads.
