Hi all,

This post refers directly to 2 new and FREE Applications that have just been released and we thought that we’d make mention of them both as they’re not on our iPad Lists and… well… they’re great!

The first is linked directly for our Early Years Students and is titled ‘Endless Alphabet’.

This app is assists kids in developing their ABC skills and building vocabulary with all of the characters involved within this application. Kids can participate in interactive puzzle games with talking letters and watch short animations pointing out the definition of the focus words! The features of this app are:

– Dozens of words to start with and more being delivered automatically to the app on a regular basis
– Delightful animations teach children the definitions of the words in a fun and engaging way
– Word game teaches children letters
– Endless Alphabet was designed with your children in mind – there are no high scores, failures, limits or stress. Your children can interact with the app at their own pace.

Well worth the download! Thanks to Tom, our VCE IT teacher for coming across this one! Great find!

The other great app has purpose in pretty much all areas from P-11 is Math based and titled ‘My Script Calculator’.

My Script Calculator allows the user to simply write their equation on to their iPad/iPod Touch/iPhone screen and have the intuitive application solve their problem converting all symbols and numbers to digital text delivering the answer right there and then!

As mentioned, a great and worthwhile application to download and have a play with! In reality, it is much more effective and quicker than using a traditional calculator!
