General Discussion / Apple Macbook - what can you do?

Hi guys, need some ideas.  Our school have invested in a bank of apple macbooks and I have bought one home to 'have a play' this week.  I have never used a macbook before so does anybody have any ideas what I can do with it.  I have some instructions for podcasting with garageband but would like some inspiration from any apple users out there....

When I have seen science mock exams at my school the questions are a lot of multiple choice, one word answers and yes you do need to know the right answer but in Geography there are much more extended answers needed.  Pupils need to be good at English and be able to write in paragraphs to express their knowledge and this is certainly what students at my school struggle with.

I have done project work on the local area which then links with their settlement unit, the first topic they study in year 7.

Thanks for sharing :)

My year 13's did the G4 in January and found it really useful planning questions along with the mark scheme.  Structure is so important in the essays - I got them to break down the question into keywords and plan their essay around them linking in the case studies.  I also got them to make revision cards for each of the case studies we did from the 4 sections with key points on them as it is important to refer to examples outside the resource booklet too.  Plenty of timed practice could be included and peer marking the questions using the mark scheme really gets them to understand what is required.  Hope this helps :)

I managed to get some funding to buy all the GCSE students a CGP revision guide each (£3.25) at the start of the course in the hope they will use it at home.  I often set tasks directly related to the revision guide to encourage them to use it.  Not particularly innovative but worth a try :)

I can recommend WJEC as a great A Level course ( I am an examiner though!).  Really like the wide range of answers that are acceptable and the question structure gives pupils to show what they know very well imo of course :)

We have 6 x 50 min lessons per week.  Split equally between 3 human and 3 physical :)

The mark scheme is at the end of the paper on the version I have.  Have you clicked all the way through the paper?
