iAnnotate

iAnnotate would be a great tool to use for my ideas of establishing a blended learning environment in my classroom. iAnnotate allows students to journal, annotate, respond, and collaborate through the application. This application will also allow me to read what my students are putting into their work as well as leave constructive comments.
