One of the biggest challenges teachers face is reaching a wide range of ability levels in the classroom, while ensuring all students are challenged and mastering required content. The task of differentiating to meet the needs of multiple intelligences can be overwhelming, but I recently came across a new application designed specifically with these challenges in mind.
Classkick is a free new iPad application that eliminates paper and pencils and essentially transforms students’ iPads into an electronic whiteboards. That in itself is cool, but even more impressive is the fact that Classkick gives teachers real-time access to screenshots of each student’s workspace. Want to give private feedback to a student or offer a helpful “hint” to the entire class? Classkick gives you these options.
