Favorite Find Friday:: IPad Case
Dr. Wesley Fryer, wrote some months ago about #MyFavFriday, the Makyama iPad Case. I knew then that if he recommended it, I had to have one. I promptly pointed it out to hubby and marked it as a definite birthday wish (it still took precious son, Mr. 21, to remind him the day of that I had asked for it...ey yi yi) . It arrived some weeks ago and I have not been disappointed. The sturdy plastic molded case fits snugly on my iPad and screws securely onto a tripod. There are slots and spaces on the case for lights, lenses, and microphones, but I am certainly not there yet as a videographer.
So why order the pricey case? I wanted a way for my students to confidently use my (personal...one and only...the one I camped out to get) iPad in class to create our math movies. By placing the iOS device in the case and on the tripod, students no longer have to hold the iPad while trying to operate the different apps. It provides a secure, hands free way to take the shots they need for their original works. I relax a bit too and the thought "I hope they don't drop it...I hope they don't drop it." is silenced for a while:) When I say, I absolutely love this case, I mean I absolutely LOOOOOOVE this case. In my opinion, it is a must have for the classroom implementing iPad projects involving pictures or video creations.
