Annotating a PDF

How to use a digital worksheet: Annotating a PDF

I wanted to find a way to draw and write on a PDF file just like you would if you had a pen or pencil, in order to use those files digitally with students. I also wanted to find FREE apps for use in the classroom. Here are my findings:
iPad

Use a program such as Type on PDF: http://bit.ly/NAUxch
Students will open the PDF using this application and can add annotations (text, drawing), save the document with their name, and then send the document back to the instructor.
Android Tablet

Skitch: http://bit.ly/H6PM6g
Mantano Reader (Lite): http://bit.ly/LzJYIe
iAnnotate PDF: http://bit.ly/LYD1BM
Google Drive: I am not sure if this app will allow annotations on PDF’s, but will be looking into in the next few weeks.

On your computer:

Using Adobe Acrobat Pro: http://adobe.ly/PlpXW4

Good forum posts:

1. http://bit.ly/Plq1VM
2. http://bit.ly/MmQRMd

Feel like paying for some apps? Here are a couple that received high marks:
