Keynote for iPad, part of the iWork app suite, is a beautiful and powerful presentation tool, which is almost as good as the Mac desktop version. Users can create slideshows for projects, professional presentations, etc using the built-in templates, graphics, and animations.
Presentations can be shared on external displays or projectors using a VGA adaptor and Keynote Remote ($0.99). Presentation files can be synced to your computer via iTunes, or sent via Email.
Diigo provides a simple way to bookmark, annotate, and search the hundreds, if not thousands of websites that we bookmark from our Twitter feeds, web searches, and collegial recommendations. It allows users to tag, highlight, and add sticky notes to ANY webpage, and because they are stored in the cloud, they can be accessed on almost any device. And it’s available as an iPad app!
We highly recommend the Diigo for Educators account (free, but requires a school email address), which provides teachers, and their students, with a powerful research tool at their fingertips. To find out how you can use Diigo in the classroom, please review the links below.
