Parent Teacher Interviews and Three Way Conferences are coming up for many schools and we know what a valuable part they have to play in student learning. iPads can help support this time. Of course they are a wonderful way to share student learning as students can show the work they have done and reflections they have made about their learning goals. If students are at the meeting a screen casting app such as Educreations, ScreenChomp or Explain Everything could be used to document learning goals for the next semester, created collaboratively with the student, teacher and parent.
The downside of parent teacher interviews is the waiting time for parents between interviews but this could also be an opportunity to show some of the amazing things the iPads have enabled their children to do, how learning is changing and to showcase your school…..and of course waiting time won’t seem so bad after all. Here are just a few suggestions:
