When students miss class or lag behind during multi-day, multi-stage projects, your homework collection plans can fall apart. Even the best-prepared teachers encounter the dilemma of what to do when a student brings in one preliminary stage of a project a day or two late. If you collect it from the student, you risk letting them fall further behind while they wait for you to return it with feedback; but if you don’t collect it, they won’t get any feedback at all! You have an iPad with a decent camera, so you’re covered. Just take a digital photo. Or if you want to get a bit fancy, use a “camera scanner” app like Genius Scan or CamScanner to achieve a cleaner, crisper image ready for sharing, printing, or digital annotation. And speaking of digital document annotation…there’s more to come on that topic.
