Lesson idea – using Titan Pad for collaborative writing

Collaborative writing has been easy to do using Google Docs for a while now, but here’s an alternative! TitanPad allows a teacher to create their own working space, where new documents can be set up and password protected easily. Giving children a QR code or link will take them directly to the pad, where they can add/edit information and see others’ contributions in real time. Each user’s contributions show up in a different colour and there is the option to ‘chat’ alongside the work. The beauty of using iPads to work in this way as opposed to PCs, is that children can more easily work alongside one another to work.

Here is an example of a piece of writing children in my class began to create:
