iPad Apps

To help develop the quality of Teaching and Learning across the curriculum, we have begun introducing an iPad app of the month.  These are introduced, explored and reviewed during development sessions and communities of practice.  Below are the apps we have introduced so far.  Please leave any comments sharing how you use them in your class and across the curriculum.

  1. I have found Pic Collage particularly useful for creating posters. It gives a professional look and it is remarkably easy for the children to pick up.

    It’s also great for making storyboards in Literacy work as the template is already there and the children can easily add images from the internet and edit them.
