  1. Hi Bec,
    I enjoyed reading about how you are using goodreader and other programs to cut down on the paper trail in the classroom. It all looks very impressive! I also look forward to reading about using your ipad on your IWB. Thanks for sharing your learning.

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for your comment- I am glad you have enjoyed the posts. It can be hard to get your head around it to begin with but using the iPad for eliminating the paper trail is fantastic when you get used to it! It keeps me so mobile in the classroom! I love it!

    I will make sure I do a post about using the IWB with the iPad- there are so many things you can do!

    Thanks again for the lovely comment!
