Overview

Administrators have long done observations of teachers, but now more than ever, administrators are being required to observe and document more often and in greater detail. With NCLB and Race to the Top, districts and even entire states are beginning to standardize teacher observation formats.

We will show you how the iPad can take the paperwork aspect out of the observation and free up the administrator's time to focus more on the curriculum and the teachersí pedagogical development. Putting observation forms directly on the iPad allows for instant word processing, filing, sharing, and most importantly, documentation. With the iPad the observation write-up can be done the instant the administrator leaves the classroom.

In this webinar, we will cover and compare 2 primary ways to do instant, sharable, paperless observations using Google Docs & GoodReader. We will also outline a few other app alternatives so you, the administrator, can develop the best system of instant paperless observations for yourself and your school community.

A lot of great ideas were shared in this webinar. Using a PDF Annotator such as GoodReader for already created forms is something I will definitely use. The presenter explained it very well; made it seem very easy to use. Thanks for sharing!

REally good ideas for admin, but I think I could use them with my students as we complete our reading, writing, and math conferences.
