iPads in Science

Hilliard City Schools will always embrace new technology. Director of Technology Rich Boettner believes it’s important to let the community know how new technology is being used in the classroom every day. In his Technology Connections Blog he is spotlighting different ways iPads are being used. This week he looks into a Hilliard Darby High School Science class. Shawn Morris is using the Noteability app to work on science concepts with his class. Students can import teacher notes, presentations and documents into Noteability. Then they can notate on top of the documents and save their work. They can even turn this work back into Mr. Morris if it is an assignment.
