Using Adobe Voice in the Elementary Classroom

Classroom teachers and students have another wonderful iOS app at their disposal! I love, love, love this app!!! Adobe Voice is very intuitive for students and teachers to navigate. Plus the finished projects are enjoyable to watch. Students can save the video to their camera roll or email a link to the video which is stored on Adobe's site.

Suggested uses:

1. Fluency
2. Tell a story
3. Tutorial
4. Share knowledge
5. Explain understanding of a standard

How To Video created with the help of some of my students.

Student Examples:

My Eyes (3rd Grade)

Pollution (5th Grade)

The Cat (Kindergarten)

How to Make a Rooter Float (3rd Grade)

Purchasing iOS Apps Without Your iPad

As you all know, K/1 teachers do not have iPads yet. However, you can still purchase free Apps to have in your account for later use by you and your students. Plus this is good to know if you want to purchase apps from your laptop if your iPad is not handy.

1. Log into your iTunes Account on your laptop using your assigned Apple ID. (Your ID should be "YourSchool"ipad"#" ) There would be no spaces nor capital letters. Example = If you do not know your assigned iPad number, please shoot me an email. I have access to the list. 

2. Search for the app that you would like in the iTunes Store.

3. Purchase the app by clicking where is says "Get". After you have done this step, the app will show up in the "purchased" section of the App Store on all devices that are logged into your Apple ID. 

If you have any questions, please let me know.
