The iPad comes with a note taking app (Notes) which like it’s cousin on the iPhone is woefully limited. Luckily there are many alternatives in the App Store (many many alternatives). A new one seems to pop out every week! Not only that, but they’re constantly in flux with bug fixes and feature enhancements. Depending on the situation (taking personal notes, meeting minutes, lecture notes, etc.) and your preferred method of note taking, your choice of an app may differ, because there is a wide variation in the approach and functionality available. If you haven’t looked closely at the options, you may be pleasantly surprised at what’s available!method of note taking Typing on an iPad is much easier and productive than on an iPhone, in fact one can create a long note without too much trouble. Taking notes effectively with an iPad in meetings or situations traditionally the mainstay of pencil & paper, however, requires a good app and some well-practiced skills: (cont.)

In Closing This PowerPoint illustrates my ability to use and adapt many of the programs used by Richmond Public Schools. While I may not have used all possible programs, I have always been very quick at learning to apply software to the learning environment. I used Probe ware and Digital Blue Microscope software while teaching Science and have administered the KeepnTrack, Compass Learning, Study Island and School website. There are other examples and backup files on this disk. My Portaportal and Wikispace also display my works.
