“My favourite use of Padvu is sharing examples of ‘good’ work. Pupils have all these abstract terms like ‘application, analysis, evaluation’ but it’s hard to understand what these mean in practical terms and how to achieve them. With Padvu & iPad, I can choose one of the student’s answers, take a quick photo of it and show it on the IWB. We can then discuss it as a class, it can be annotated and highlighted in Explain Everything, and I can share it to VLE, Twitter, Google a Drive or Dropbox, so they can refer to it later. It makes learning relevant as they can see “good work” from their own classmates and it serves as a useful motivational tool. And it’s easy and fast for me: no printing, no photocopying! Win-win!”
