FREE Product!- Bring Your Own Device

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

I am excited to be participating in 

my first Linky Party with 
The Organized Classroom's 
Manic Monday Post!

When we are doing an app based or Internet activity, I allow students to bring in their own devices to use in class. But more specifically when doing app based activities, I have come to realize that not all apps are available on the different app markets. While the Blackberry/Android market seems to have the most apps, the Apple market seems to have the most educational apps. Some of them you can find on both markets, but a lot of the ones I have used are only on the Apple market.

Instead of answering 100 times (or more) which devices will work for an app based activity, I decided to create a poster to hopefully cut down on this. I will laminate and attach a magnet to it and put it on the white board where I display my homework for the night for a visual reminder for students. I will then use it to check off which devices will work.

What a great idea! It is great that your students can BYOD, but I can see how frustrating it would be to try to plan around everyone's different devices.
I'm so glad I found your blog! I am originally from Kentucky, but moved to Maryland after I graduated to follow my husband (boyfriend at the time). I have taught middle school math for the past 5 years. I am now beginning my new job as technology coordinator at my school. I hope to steal some good ideas from your blog:-) I'm your newest follower:-)

We moved here from Tennessee last year, and my school is 100 times better making for an easier adjustment! My dream job would be tech coordinator or to do professional development! I hope you can find some things useful! I'll be sure to check yours out as well! :-)
