Using iPads to teach English as a second language
1) Create an online lesson for an in-class topic. Record the main ideas of your lesson and give students a link or post your creation to an online social media site.
2) Have students create a narrated visual presentation on a topic using your/their iPad and show it in class as opposed to a “stand in front of the class” type presentation.
3) Create a Vocab Map using Skitch / DoodleBuddy and ShowMe together. Pick a picture that is related to a topic you are teaching and annotate it with Skitch showing the vocabulary for the picture. Then, upload the photo and use it on ShowMe to narrate and pronounce the vocab.
4) Download the presentation and upload it to YouTube so students have instant access to your ShowMes!
These are just a few uses for ShowMe. I use it all the time, and I’m sure that you will too once you get used to it.
