Classroom Tools – My Whiteboard

Penultimate – a jotter on the iPad

Penultimate is a simple app which allows students to write on the screen and then save what has been written in Evernote. Users can select from 3 different backgrounds: plain, lined and squared meaning that Penultimate can be used as a digital jotter. The app uses handwriting recognition so all notes can be searched for specific keywords.

Notes created with Penultimate can be shared directly with Edmodo allowing homework to be submitted in 3 clicks. Notes can also be exported as PDF files.
