UPDATE: I totally forgot a really important feature-it's password protected!
Here is the first in a series about using an iPad in the Art Studio effectively. I discovered this app a couple of weeks ago, and am completely in love with it! How did I get along without it all these years?! It is a bit spendy at $7.99, but I think it is completely worth it. I have been told that "Planboard" is similar and free, but I tried that first and as an elementary teacher, my school wasn't listed. I requested it to be added and never heard back from them. Upon trying again a week later, my school still wasn't listed. I couldn't even try it without my school being listed so I gave up and found iDoceo.
What does iDoceo do? It is a schedule, calendar, planner, gradebook, and seating charts all in one app. You can also upload resources and lesson plans, but I haven't gotten that far yet. I have my students' photos all added into my program, so I created a fake class to show you how to get started.
|This is my main page. All of my classes are listed, and there is a to-do list on the right. On the left are the links to other aspects of the app.|
|Here is my planner. I color coded my classes by grade level for easy reference. I love being able to copy/paste my lesson in and then just add details to remember exactly where the class left off! It also allows for week and day views.|
|This is the ONLY program I have found that allows me to use our six day cycle for the schedule/planner. It actually allows the user to create a cycle of any amount of days!|
|Creating a class is simple-just tap "Add" and put in the info about the class. This is where I color coded them by grade.|
|The three vertical lines with a + by them in the top right corner allows users to add columns for projects. The app also allows for custom grading formats and adds grades!|
|Here is how to change the background image in seating charts. I had the image in my camera roll.|
|This is what my seating charts look like! Super easy for subs to use. I uploaded them to Dropbox and printed them to put in my sub binder.|
