Animate it

I’ve been using Aardman Animations Animate-it App on my iPad as a plenary activity. A group of students will use the last ten minutes of a lesson to create a stop motion animation which demonstrates the learning that has taken place.

As a plenary it’s been a fun way of seeing how they present what they have learnt. It can also be used the following lesson to re-cap the progress we’ve made.

Make sure you download ios 6 (from settings – check for softward updates on ipad), basically same software as on iphone 5, and with iPad 3 the siri works really well, as does the 3d maps and the speed of some apps etc.
In terms of in a class, the “dictation voice recognition” is amazing, so if you have a dyslexic or someone struggling to write technical words then they can do some work on the ipad by talking to it.
