Save a tree- Digital Running Records!!

Are you tired of making [tons!!] of running record copies?! You can now use the Explain Everything app on your iPad to complete digital running records!! This will not only save you time, it will also save a few trees! 

NISD has adopted the Fountas and Pinnell IRI Kits. Most kits have a CD at the back of the teacher book. If yours does, you can save the blank running record forms from the CD into a folder in your Google Drive. If not, you can take pictures of the running record forms and import them into Explain Everything. The following video will show you how to import the blank forms, complete the running record with annotations right on the iPad, and then save them. You can even record the student reading while simultaneously completing the form!

Exporting your complete running records is of utmost importance! To do this, create a Google Drive folder for each of your students on your computer. As the video shows, you can then export the running record to Google Drive as a PDF or as a video if you have recorded your students reading. Contact myself of your campus Academic Technology Coach if you need support!
