iPad App of the Week - MathTrain

All members of our district leadership team (superintendents, directors, principals) have iPads. This year for their leadership meetings we have been sharing an "App of the Week" with them to introduce useful productivity apps or educational apps to help support classroom instruction.

This week we introduced them to MathTrain. This app allows users to access the student created math tutorials on the MathTrain website (http://mathtrain.tv/). The math videos are a great resource to use with students and are a good model for our students to use in creating their own.

We were inspired to share this app after listening to the keynote presentation by Eric Marcos last week at the Mobile Learning Experience 2012  conference. Eric and two of his students shared their inspiration and process of creating and sharing student created math video tutorials.

Visit our iAchieve webpage to view more Apps of the Week.

Enjoy!
