Workflow seems to be a continuous topic for discussion with the introduction of iPads into the classroom. How best to distribute work to students, receive it back once they have completed it and then mark it and return it to them using only iPads? Can it really be that difficult?
It certainly isn’t overly straightforward. Dropbox, Evernote and several alternatives are great, but they don’t offer the personalisation of a tool like Edmodo. As well as being a great tool for student and teacher communication, Edmodo can be used as part of an iPad 1:1 workflow alongside Dropbox (thanks to Darren Coxon here). What follows is my attempt to describe the process by which it can be done.
Part 1 – Creating and setting the assignment
Part 2 – Receiving, completing and returning the assignment (The student part)
Part 3 – Collecting the assignment, marking it and returning it to your students
Remember when I said it wasn’t overly straightforward?
