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.
Here’s a link to the app page: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/animate-it/id544691268?mt=8
This is a useful article on apps to support Gardner’s multiple intelligences.
This looks interesting – as you can create books on your ipad (adding video and sound files) and still open them using ibooks. However, it is $4.99 – is it worth it though?
If you update to iOS 6, you can switch on guided access which means you can lock the ipad onto one app, and give it to students to use, without worrying that they will go off and read your emails, or access the Internet.
There is a good video here showing how it can be used
This blog was created to allow the Twynham Digital Innovation group to share ideas easily and store useful links. Hopefully it will be useful for other teachers too.
