If any of your schools are like mine you have a set number of copies you can use per month. Well today is the 30th and I am already out! Sometimes I can go through the month and still have tons left and some months I don't have any left. Well today is Monday and homework has to go home and I was all out! Our HW is 3 pages for the week and I was missing 1 page. They do spiral review and have different problems for each day. SO I had to send this home TODAY!
What is a girl to do?
a. send a note home saying the copier is broken
b. beg everyone I know for copies and hope I can get a class set
c. pray that my trusty iphone has an answer!
Well the answer today was C! I was chatting with my friend Melissa about my situation and she said..."You could always scan it and print it on your printer."
DING DING DING The bells went off in my head! I have an app on my phone that I use for business. ( I am a graphic designer) It allows me to scan documents and email them or fax them from my phone. I LOVE this app and never thought it would be of any use to me in the classroom. The app is called Scanner Pro it is 6.99 but worth every penny and cheaper than a scanner.
SO I got to work and one minute later, I was done! All I had to do was take a picture of the document with my phone and my phone scanned it and turned it into a PDF document. I emailed it to myself and printed it right out on my computer!
YEAA!!!! I did it! My phone saved the day and all of my students got their homework today! See the actual document on the left and my scanned document from my phone on the right. Flawless!
Do you have a useful app that helps you in the classroom? Please share below!
