Visualize for iPad

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

This is a brilliant intuitive tool. I have used across Primary classes K - 6. The ability to add photographs, text and a range of other objects makes this a complete tool for producing posters, book covers, infographics etc.

Paper Camera

Friday, February 22, 2013

This is a great app which enables movies and pictures to be changed into a variety of formats e.g. cartoon, drawing etc. Simple and effective tool. Great in the classroom.

Doc Scan HD

Friday, March 01, 2013

A handy tool to scan text, pictures etc. Works well.

Showbie

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Have just started to use this app. It really is the answer to so many of the questions about how to interact between different apps, how to share, how to assign, how to review. Ideal for flipping as teachers and students can easily record themselves share reflections etc. Not just an iOS app so students without iPads can also interact via the Web. Have yet to use fully with a class.
Seriously worth a look.
Really excellent online support materials too.

CloudOn

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Cloudon is a great app available for both iPad and Android. It enables you to access storage on Box, DropBox and Google Docs. The great thing about Cloudon is that it provides an excellent workspace in which to edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint directly on your tablet.

ComicBook!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Comic Book is a great tool which enables the creation of a comic book. Users can import pictures and add speech bubbles and text to create stories. The app is easy to use and is engaging.

Students can create narratives, recounts, reports. A good app for Primary school aged children (5 years to 12 years). I have used it asking students to show a sequence of events in a literature study and to construct a short historical recount. Students really enjoy using this app.

Skitch

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Skitch is a really simple tool and as such is really great to use in classroom. I have used it to show a journey on a map, to create and label a diagram, to create a book cover. It is an open ended tool so the possibilities are endless.

iMovie

Friday, February 22, 2013

Simple, powerful tool for creating video. An everyday classroom tool. Great value for money.

ShowMe

Saturday, June 30, 2012

This is a great tool, easy to use and some excellent features. You can use this tool to write, draw, talk and record voice. Great to use with any age group because it is open ended. The resulting product is an animation. A child in kindergarten could draw and tell a story, or an older student could explain a Maths equation.

Flipboard

Saturday, June 30, 2012

This is a great tool which enables the user to create a personal magazine. One of my favourite ways to stay in touch with all online info in an easy visual way. As a teacher I can follow twitter streams around education, technology, psychology etc. Students could follow rss feeds on specific topics, follow institutions such as NASA etc re topics they are learning about. An essential app.

MathBoard

Friday, February 22, 2013

Unlike most Maths apps Mathboard is more open ended. It caters well for differentiated needs. A great working canvas for students in Primary and Infants classrooms.
