Does anyone keep student data on the iPad?  If so, with what app?  I am looking to go paperless and need some advice.  I've tried "Teacher Notes"- no dice.

Any suggestions are appreciated:)

SoundingBoard, from AbleNet, is an awesome AAC app that was free for at least a little while this Spring (and it may still be).  It is really an iPhone app but works just fine on the iPad.  If you are looking for ready-made, simple communication boards then you want to have this app!

If You Lose Your iPad (Oh Crap!)

Find iPhone

This is a great app that will allow you to find your iPad if you misplace it. Download the app to the iPad and set up is very quick. You can locate it using you computer through iCloud or through another Mac device. If anything you can just have fun with it and show the kids that you are "Watching them" haha. It's a smart app to have. If you do lose it you can remotely lock the device or show a text message with instruction on returning device. Download the app!
