Cool Tools presentation
This resource has not yet been reviewed.
I think the presentation was very informative and entertaining. I really enjoyed the visual demonstration that you gave. I think that this would be a great idea to have in classrooms, obviously with the monitoring and supervision of teachers. Overall, excellent job!
I liked the actual demonstration of navigating the iPad, and how to acquire apps. Perhaps more in depth analysis of a particular app would have benefited the informative aspect of the video. Nevertheless, it was good!
You guys had a very good idea in presenting the Ipad. You both did a great job at giving examples for ways that the ipad can serve as an educational tool. Also, the organization, and clarity of the video was very exceptional. The only recommendations I can provide is to maybe use could use more action to grab the viewers attention. You guys could possibly use more animation in your voice and body language to create more excitement.
I thought that your video was very informative and gave some great examples of how students can use the IPad in the classroom. Visually, I thought that your project was excellent and you seemed to answer your questions very well and made very applicable points. Very funny as well! Great job!
Your video was quite good. I like that you used outside clips and you showed the variety of apps available for use in the classroom. One area that I think you could have been improved would have been possibly touching on more specific information on how it could be used in a lesson, but overall it was really good.
I really liked your video! I think the humor and music choice pretty early were fun and attention grabbing, and you did a good job of going over a pretty good variety of apps and the educational values! I think maybe you could have touched on the fact that different age groups of students might have different interactions with ipads - that teachers might have to use them in different ways or supervise more closely or allow more individual freedom to students in different classes based on their levels. Great Job!
This was a great video! I love how you used a lot of different clips and incorporated them into the video. I thought you did a great job of showcasing the amount of apps that are out there for teachers. The only thing I can think of that would make it better would have been to go into detail about an app or two to show how to use the iPad.
I thought the video was very informative and had great information and graphics. The video showed a lot of useful apps that could be used in the classroom that I had never heard of. I think there could have been more specific details on what to use, but other than that I enjoyed it.
The graphics in the video and effects were great. I also like the idea of using iPad apps for learning. More specific information could have been given on how to use iPad education tools in the classroom, though. Other than that, I thought that overall it was an informative video.
The video held my attention and was very interesting. I'm not very familiar with apple products or apps in general so for someone like me it was very helpful.
I thought the video was very informative. It gave a lot of great information on how it is a useful tool to be used in the classroom. I also liked that it gave specific data on some different kinds of applications that can be used. Two things that could have been improved on are what applications specifically could be used while teaching and how it could serve as a hindrance to learning so teachers could make an informed decision before using them in the classroom.
I really enjoyed their video! I liked the beginning part where the viewer could see the size difference between a laptop, smart phone, and the iPad. I also enjoyed the different learning apps that they highlighted. I thought it was very informative yet still entertaining. The only thing that I think could have been better was to discuss the downsides to using iPads in the classroom (the distractions).
This video was done very well and kept the attention of the viewer the entire time due to the music, effects, and narration. I really liked how they demonstrated different kind of applications and how they stressed the fact that the students could learn while having fun. They could have offered a little more information about the specific apps and the specifics as to how they teach the students in a fun way.
I really liked watching this video about educational apps. I think that the points that they made about the ipads portability as compared to textbooks was extremely true. I also liked the point that they made about how the education ipad apps can progress with the learner. I think that there could have been more information about specific educational apps, but it was a very good video.
I really enjoyed this video. Your visuals showed a lot of different educational apps and your transitions made the video easy to follow. The music choice and the Sesame Street incorporation made your explanation of the content fun to watch. I would have maybe included a few more specific facts about more of the apps that you showed, but overall it was very interesting!
Dani and Andrea definitely gave many different ideas for how to utilize ipad apps in the classroom. And I thought they used a lot of different media to emphasize their point (personal video, youtube video, etc.) Two things I would add would to create a more central theme to the video, so that all the points are equally clear as well as provide info on each app shown in the end. Overall, it was great!
