Screenshots on iPod Touches and iPads

My students take screenshots of game results or creations on our iPod Touches or iPad Minis to email me the "proof". They used to write their scores on post it notes, but I quickly found out they fibbed! Taking screenshots has helped students to become accountable for learning while working independently during work stations. I can forward screenshot emails to parents or use the screenshot photos for "data" for intervention or for RIMP plans. 

I ASSUMED everyone knew how to take a screenshot, but I found out today there are a few of my teacher friends who do not know how! For those of you who already know- skip this blog post! For those of you who don't- it's simple and you will love it! 

All you do is "click" the power button and home button as the exact same time. It takes a picture (screenshot) of whatever is on the screen of your iPod or iPad. It then saves it in the Photo Album. 

We have 1 Gmail account for ALL iPod Touches and iPad Minis. It is the same account and email address. Students do not need to know the address or password. They simply click the screenshot photo in the photo album and chose the mail icon. When they start to type my name, it automatically pops up. Make sure your students put their names in the subject line so you know whose results you are getting! I receive MANY emails per day. It's great Quick- simple DATA!

  2. That's really great.Thanks a lot for your post.I think it will be helpful for everyone who doesn't know about it.I have little bit to share.Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) provides a simple route for schools to purchase and distribute apps and substance to students. Using VPP codes, you can ensure that all students have admittance to the classroom materials they need while concentrating purchasing.
    Using the 'Casper Suite' app to oversee and track your VPP codes, you will can distribute apps and substance to student devices, while writing about usage and keeping up ownership for your association.Have a nice day.
