iTunes U: Bringing it all together

I believe iTunes U is a life saver when students have an independent study opportunity.

The following example is of a student taking Algebra in my class.  The classroom teacher (Chelsea Hoglund) created an iTunes U course.  All the worksheets and flipped classroom videos are in this course.  The student then uses Notability to complete the assignments.  From Notability, he can share the complete assignments back to the teacher in Google Drive.  Amazing!!!! So many levels of technology are used to create this learning opportunity.

Programs/Apps being used in this demonstration.
Google Drive
iTunes U
Explain Everything

Here is the student explaining his independent opportunity.  You may have to turn up the volume.

  1. Great post, Gary! Isn't it amazing how quickly content can not only be delivered, but personalized, via iTunes U! It is just what students need to be an independent self-directed learner! I enjoyed the student tour of the course!

    Thanks for writing up the post and sharing!
