Stop Motion… with PREPS!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of presenting with a wonderful colleague of mine, Sam, at the ICTEV Creating Connections Conference 2012. Sam, who is our college’s Prep Team Leader, is known throughout the college for both his high level of teaching ability but also his ability to integrate ICT in to his teaching and learning programs.

The topic of our presentation at ICTEV was titled, ‘Movie making on the iPad, so easy a 5 year old could do it’. Our session involved running participants through how to create simple yet effective movies on the iPad device with just a few simple applications, the main two of these being Doodle Buddy, which is a great free app for image creation, and StoryRobe. This app is an iPhone app however still works great on the iPad device. StoryRobe lets students take photos and create sketches that allow them to sequence, narrate and render films. Photo’s can also be imported from the camera roll and this is where Doddle Buddy is great for that.

The other major component of our session was showcasing and demonstrating the great work our prep’s have been doing in relation to creationg StopMotion Animation pieces! I have asked Sam to write a guest post which is below! I have also added several short videos that the prep’s have completed in class!

Thanks!

 

I’ll never again be surprised by the abilities of five year olds. I probably shouldn’t be already considering some of the amazing things they’ve already done on iPads and their ability to learn so quickly in general, but when I decided to introduce Stop Motion animation this term, I’ve been staggered at how quickly the Preps have picked it up.

I’ve previously used stop motion with year 7 students. It’s a great hands on tool to engage boys and can be easily incorporated into numeracy, literacy and inquiry learning with a small amount of creativity. Generally speaking the kids loved it and self-taught themselves how to do it. All I needed to do was guide them with storyboarding and the odd quality control conversation.

Introducing it to five year olds is a different story. I want them to play with the technique to explore what it can and can’t do and what it looks like when it is done well and when it isn’t done well.

At Manor Lakes we spend the first two sessions on Monday through Thursday in our ‘Investigations’ time, which is based upon the Walker Learning Approach. Here student choice and interests shape the learning environment and although they hadn’t expressed an interest as such, I set up a ‘stop motion’ interest table to see what response I got. Sure enough the lure of using the iPad during investigations (which we normally haven’t) meant it was a popular choice. I chose a pair of students to teach the basics of the iMOTION HD app to, which took about 5 minutes. I then left the students to have a play to see what they would come up with.

Their first attempt wasn’t bad, but there were arms, hands and unwanted camera movement that could all be improved upon. I quizzed the students’ what did they like, what didn’t they like? They had noticed the hand movements . They had noticed it was too quick in places. I was suitably impressed.

The first pair of students made a cute little film of a tower of blocks being built and then vanishing. We showed it to the rest of the grade during reflection time and they loved it. They all wanted a turn. 

My two ‘experts’ then passed on the knowledge by sharing it with a pair of students from our neighboring class. They know are beginning to develop stop motions with blocks, cars and magnetic letters too!

I look forward to our ‘play’ with this animation technique developing into our Preppies developing story-based animations. I’ll be sure not to assume they can’t do it, that’s for sure, but for now I’ll be content knowing what they have already been able to master!  

 

Parent iPad Update – May 2012!

Hi all.

Please find below our Parent update letter which was sent home on a combination of either Friday 11th May and / or Monday 14th May!  This letter basically updates parents of a few of the happenings lately in regards to our 1:1 iPad Program in years 6 and 7!

You can also download this document below as a PDF!

Thanks.

 

1:1 iPads 4 Learning @ MLC

Parent Update – May 2012

Years 6 and 7

May 2012

Dear Parent / Guardian,

This is simply a courtesy letter to inform you of recent happenings and updates in regards to our 1:1 iPad Program in years 6 and 7.

Once again, we’d like to thank you as parents/guardians for your continued and overwhelming support that we as a college have received. Programs like the 1:1 iPad program can only be successful if we have the high support of yourselves in relation to the high quality ICT programs we here at the college run.

It has been great from an ICT Leading Teacher’s point of view to see the students using their devices as tools to assist their learning. The students have been learning and developing new concepts with the assistance of their iPad device and as their teachers will attest, it has certainly been great to witness. 

Like any new programs and initiatives that we as a college undertake, there are always ‘teething’ issues that we encounter. It has been pleasing that with your support we are overcoming these to ensure that the students involved in the program are using their devices correctly during class via demonstrating behaviours that are expected.

We as a college do ask that you as parents / guardians monitor your student’s iPad regularly for inappropriate content. This can come in the form of inappropriate applications, music, movies and images. It is important that you are aware of what your students are doing on their device, especially whilst not at the college.

We have encountered students that have been using applications in class that we as a college deem inappropriate, such as games that contain adult content and violence. If students are witnessed playing these games in class at any stage throughout the day, students will be spoken to and have that particular application deleted. Parents will then be notified of the student’s behaviour.

Very recently we have had several damaged iPad’s come to visit the tech’s at their office, all damages being smashed and cracked iPad screens. Generally, a broken iPad screen will warrant a replacement of that device however we have worked with our Mac Supplier / Repairers to where we can now have screen replaced for a nominal fee. Parents need to ensure that students are looking after their technology to ensure these types of breakages do not occur.

The downloading of new applications and the updating old ones can be quite a taxing experience, especially if application updates are large in their file sizes. Due to this, and more and more schools moving towards iPads and 1:1 Mac devices, DEECD (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development), have placed blockages on downloads from the iTunes store. This obviously affects our college greatly, meaning that download times for applications here at Manor Lakes are ridiculously slow, and may need to occur at home. If teaching staff are wanting students to have a particular application they may be asked to download this at home. In saying this, the size of the application will certainly be taken in to consideration. We will also not be asking students to download paid applications.

In relation to the instalments that are required to be paid for the iPad device for those who purchased through Manor Lakes, the second instalment date has come and gone. Can you please ensure you get this instalment paid a.s.a.p. so as to not have any outstanding payments lingering down the track.

Lastly, our college’s reputation of running effective a 1:1 iPad Program has been gaining steady momentum which is a great thing. It is the students involved in the 1:1 program that are making it the successful venture that it is and the work that they are producing has been of a very high quality. We are having visits weekly from schools and colleges from across the state to see just how our teachers are using iPad’s to assist student learning and how students have been creating outstanding work to demonstrate and reflect what they have learnt.

Remember also, that our 1:1 iPad Blog is up and running and a lot of what we do gets posted for all to see so that we can share our journey with others and learn from the feedback that we receive. The link to this is: http://ipads4learning.global2.vic.edu.au/

If you have any questions about anything that has been mentioned above, or something that has not, please contact your child’s teacher or myself directly via the details below.

Thank you.

iPad Update May 2012

 

Mt. Pleasant PS PL Visit

http://www.mtpleasps.vic.edu.au/

Yesterday we again had the pleasure of hosting another school to our college for a PL experience revolving around our 1:1 iPad program, Mt. Pleasant Primary School from Ballarat.

Their Principal Phillip Gladman and 3 of his dedicated staff came out for half a day to see our students in action and converse with several of our staff members about the trials and tribulations surrounding a 1:1 iPad program. As I say to all visitors that we have to our college I feel that there’s no better professional learning that can take place other than visiting other schools and seeing effective teaching and learning in action.

iPads and Science = hand in hand!

Filming their work for reflective and creative purpose!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Phillip and his staff were keen to see how our iPads were being integrated in to our classroom settings as well as finding out some of the particulars surrounding our 1:1 model.

It is always great to hear what other schools are up to and how they, themselves are integrating technology in to their own teaching practices and then to have the option to network and discuss professionally what each setting is doing.

One of the things Mt. Pleasant were interested in were how student/teacher correspondence is managed, especially in relation to teachers obtaining work, etc…

At MLC we use two main methods, Dropbox but also of Google App’s and Gmail.

Being a Google App’s for Primary and Secondary Education College, we have pretty much full range and use of Google’s Applications meaning that all students in our College can be issued with a Gmail account, 25GB of online storage, and full access to the suite of app’s available. At this stage we have all students from years 5-10 with their own MLC Gmail account. This makes the sharing of work via email with staff a very easy and efficient process. For more information of the whole Google App experience, head here: Google App’s for Education.

Collaboration at it's best!

Engagement. A wonderful thing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another excellent resource that we discussed was that of YouTube for Schools, which as a college are currently about to roll-out. Like most, if not all schools in that state of Victoria, Internet bandwidth can be a major issue for schools and colleges. This means that when there is heavy traffic on a schools network, the internet can become very slow causing for headaches, frustration and often mass confusion! If schools have sites like YouTube unblocked, this can obviously result in a LOT of downloads, and as a result the Internet at that school will become very slow.

YouTube for Schools allows for schools to set up their networks and back end so that when students access YouTube, they are instantly redirected to the YouTube for Schools section, giving them access to ONLY educational based material plus, any other mainstream videos that staff have added manually. I know here at MLC this will drastically cut down on bandwidth issues we occasionally have with students streaming video off YouTube to solely listen to music. For more information on this, click this lick: YouTube for Schools

Lastly, I showed several excellent resources and sites which can support iPad implementation and application finding for educational needs. These I will include, once I collate them all in to an organised manner, in to a new post!

Hopefully the fantastic people from Mt. Pleasant PS took something away from their visit that they can use, either positive or negative from their experience!, which will assist them in their tech integration! We look forward at hearing of the great things that I am sure are already coming out of such a focused and driven school!

iPad PLT – Working Together!

Last night for the first time this year our college began the exciting journey of beginning their PLT’s (Professional Learning Teams). Staff at the college had the option to be part of a PLT that had a select focus on a particular learning area, such as ICT and iPads and hence, this blog post!

Within our PLT we have 6 very dedicated staff who are keen to see iPad and Technology Integration occur on a greater scale and it’s awesome to see that the staf within this select group are from year levels across the college.

Being the first meeting of the year it was important to establish protocols and a direction for the team, to ensure that we had shared understanding and common goals to achieve. To assist us with this process, we were asked to use the attached proforma titled: Translating Values & Purposes into Protocols: Professional Learning Teams

 

PLT Doc.

The discussions that came from this PLT last night happened thick and fast with many ideas flowing as to where we would like to head. The following things were discussed:

– Creating a resource for staff who would like to embed iPad Technology in to their teaching and how best to assist this.

– Creating an Application List which links in with the National Curriculum and what app’s can best support specific learning areas.

– Attending other schools who were running rich iPad 1:1 programs to witness best practice in action and how we could then adapt and implement that in to our own setting.

– Developing a website which support not only our staff but also other across the world in iPad implementation with lesson plans and application ideas. This could then also become a collaborative exercise with other educators from all over adding to the site.

One resource we focused on and discussed was the Contemporary Literacy Research Project that we were involved in throughout 2011. Here is the project explained;

“This Contemporary Literacy Practices of Preps e-book has been developed to showcase the range of learning opportunities possible when digital technologies become an integral part of children’s’ learning and development. The e-book is also a testament to the amazing capabilities of young learners to acquire the necessary digital literacy skills necessary for participation in life. The e-book highlights how technologies can help support sharing, collaboration and communication in and beyond the classroom.

The 63 learning activities featured in this e-book were derived from a 2011 DEECD research project, Contemporary Literacy Practices of Preps involving Prep classes from 20 Victorian Primary schools state-wide.” 

The 63 learning activities that were developed form the schools that were involved are excellent and to be a teacher and have access to this resource is great. Head to the following link and have a look at what was created by the schools involved! Contemporary (Digital) Literacy Practices of Preps e-Books (interactive) 

 

 

So on top of all of this please watch this space! I am sure that what lies ahead of us in relation to assisting not only staff at our college with iPad integration but also all other educators out there with the same thing!

Thank You!

iPad Art Creation

Yesterday whilst walking through our Art Building i noticed the work below having being written up on the whiteboard for our students to complete…

iPads 'n' Art...

I thought this was a great task for students to show off their iPad creation skills through being involved in PBL (project Based Learning). I will certainly be keen to see what the final outcome is to this task and what the students come up with. The App’s that have been listed i have explained in a little more detail below!

Notes

Notes

A great Apple Built application that does exactly what it states, allows the user to take quick and easy notes about anything. Notes also allows the user, providing it’s set up, to sync the notes that they take directly to iCloud to ensure that notes are ever lost! You’d hate to lose that idea you jotted down which could potentially change the world!

Composer

strike Notes

Demibooks Composer

This is the First iPad based authoring software for creating interactive eBooks! Similar in idea to that of Apple’s iBooks Authoring software, Composer allows the students to create fully fledged eBooks. Students can create covers, index pages, etc and can embed pictures either taken via the camera or pictures that have been drawn. A little in depth to use from the start, however, once students have gotten the hang of it, they can begin creating excellent eBooks on topics of their choice!

Story Kit

Story Kit

This application is an iPhone app which works brilliantly on an iPad. Students can create eBooks from scratch and share these with friends. To create your story you can add text, add images, record sounds, and ass a host of elements such as text boxes, sound clips and the like. There are also a number of eBooks tht can be downloaded as public domain and then edited by the user, a great feature!

Bamboo Paper

Bamboo Paper

An excellent sketch book and note taking application. A great way to keep a virtual notebook. Students can use their writing skills to create these virtual notebooks which they can then share virtually with other students and staff.

What we’d really love to see if a mobile version of the iBooks Authoring software available for the iPad so that students could then create outstanding e and interactive books for various audiences.

Lastly, on the back of what we’ve already covered, I have included several examples of work that our students have created on their iPad devices within their Art classes. Work which i am sure you’ll agree, is outstanding! Having absolutely ZERO artistic ability i have no idea how, or what app they used to create these great pieces, however, they are stunning and from all reports the students were engaged, collaborating, and displaying outstanding creative talents!

Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fed Square, the NGV & iPads

Recently I came across this blog post titled, ‘A lesson at the Zoo: Enhancing Field Trips with iPads‘. The post outlined how a group of 20 odd teachers were involved on a trip to the zoo to investigate how iPads could enhance an excursion!

So, after reading this, what BETTER way to investigate this further than tagging along on our recent year 6 excursion to Melbourne, primarily visiting Fed Square, the NGV, Birrarung Marr, and the famous Hosier Lane, known for it’s outstanding examples of street art.

Was the quietest bus trip ever!

The day’s events were for students to look at an investigate various forms of art and art work and to look at the differences between them. As mentioned already, the viewing of the street art was sensational, as was the art exhibition in the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) showing top Year 12 student Art Work. We also focused upon Aboriginal Art in both painting and sculpture form which was a real eye opener to the students.

Throughout the day, in the rain!, students were taking pictures and video footage of what they saw. To see approximately 120 students wandering around taking photos with their iPads was great and some examples of the photos that they took was outstanding!

Art imitating art?

The task for the students, which i am sure will be directed to an extent from their great teachers, is to utilise the footage and information that they took and sourced to create some excellent informative pieces about their excursion. For students to be utilising mobile technology to build and enhance their learning is certainly a great thing and to see from a teachers point of view. Students engaged in the task, using technology, collaborating with other peers, and demonstrating highly ordered thinking skills.

Once the students have completed their presentations i’ll be sure to get them here for you all to see!

Thanks!

The Same Path

It's meant to be a path... 😉

This morning i read a great post on a blog that an Educator by the name a John Pearce, who is known for doing extraordinary things with technology integration in schools, came across. John shared this post via his Scoop.it. The post itself begins with the following;

“In a response to a well written and thoughtful post that I recently read by @jmcconville1000, “Why the iPad is bad for education“, I felt compelled to respond from my personal experience of rolling out a cart of 30 iPads in a shared high school environment. 

Fundamentally I believe that an iPad can neither be good or bad. All it can ever be is an iPad. I argue instead, that when used effectively and with specific goals in mind, iPads can have a positive impact on education.  Seeing that schools are investing money on these devices, the perspective to adopt is not a combative one, but rather one that explores how to effectively integrate the devices. Whether a school is 1:1, or there is a shared iPad cart, the devices can be used effectively. ‘ The entire post can be found here on The History 2.0 Classroom. 

As we here at Manor Lakes discuss, believe and preach, the technology is merely a tool to foster learning. It is not the be all and end all of students meeting their outcomes. It is the way the devices are being used and they way pedagogy has adapted and changed to cater for students using devices that can be extremely helpful. It’s always great to read these posts and to reaffirm that we as a college are on a shared path with many others from around the globe, all of which have a common understanding of how technology is to be used and shared.

Thanks!

2012 Student iPad Survey Data

Towards the the end of 2010 when we as a college had been involved in the DEECD iPads for Learning Trial, i thought it may be a good idea to survey the students on their thoughts about using iPads in class. The results that we gained from that survey gave us a great indication of how the students were feeling towards using a piece of mobile technology to assist their learning.

5 weeks in to our new 1:1 iPad program, we decided to gain a greater understanding of what our students were feeling this time around, as some of them were in involved in the DEECD trial.

The questions asked of the students were pretty basic and generic and as already mentioned, the student’s had only been involved in this 1:1 iPad program for 5 weeks when this survey was asked of them.

The results as you can see are pretty positive on the whole, indicating to us as a college that the decision we made to not only go 1:1 iPads over MacBooks, but to also go down a BYOD model, was the right choice for our setting, students, and community.

So. Below i have embedded the survey results via a Keynote that i created and then uploaded to Slide Share. Hopefully you find some of this data useful in your own settings!

Thanks!

 

1:1 Prep iPad Program – Day 1!

Today, we have a very very special guest ‘poster’, the prep poster boy himself, our Prep Team Leader Sam. Today marked thr first day of our prep iPad program and this is Sam’s account of how the day progressed! Thanks Sam!

Today marked the rolling out of iPads to our Prep cohort. We’ve given the kids a few weeks to settle into the routine of school and now was time to add iPads into the mix.

Behind the scenes there has been a lot of work. I spent a few quiet afternoons over summer on the prowl for the best available apps. This has been a challenge. Every app in the app store tells you it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Not every app has made by someone with an education background. A lot of literacy based apps contain accents not suited for Australian students.

The website www.appitic.com was a saviour. There aren’t a lot of other schools using iPads in this age bracket of students. A lot less share this information. We’ve gone into this year knowing that we are essentially writing the script for the use of iPads in a Prep classroom.

Appitic is an app review site run by Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs). The apps are well categorized making it easy to search through and have been reviewed by educators, meaning they have classroom use in mind.

We loaded up with a raft of listening post apps (such as the Dr Seuss books) counting apps (such as tally tots) letter formation apps (letter school is a real favorite of the students) and even leveled texts (LAZ library series). These will all play a part in reinforcing and practicing concepts to do with literacy and numeracy during the year.

    

The app I’m most looking forward to using is Storyrobe. This is a simple film making app that I hope to immerse students in during the year. Stay tuned for that!

Before we become master film makers however, there are some simple routines to establish. This is what our iPad celebration today was. Students knew iPads were just around the corner, but not exactly when. They were so excited to see iPads at their tables when they arrived in the classroom this morning.

We used the morning session to establish some simple routines with students. iPads stay in their case all the time. iPads are to remain flat on tables or in laps when in use and, if they had to be carried, iPads were to be held against a students chest in two hands, much like cuddling a teddy bear!

Students then had some ‘explore’ time to practice their safe handling skills and check out the apps available on their iPads. Students were gunning for their ‘iPad license’. They were to receive this once they had demonstrated they could safely handle their iPads and also remember the routines used to safely handle them. They demonstrated this by writing and sketching about one of the rules they could remember.

Routines out of the way and we began to introduce some subject specific apps for our iPads. These were done in rotations. We laminated up the app icons and the apps students were to use was based upon the app icon on their table.

For our literacy session we introduced:

  • rED writing
  • Letter School
  • The Cat in the Hat
  • LAZ level A
  • ToonTastic

And in numeracy:

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • Counting Bear
  • Letter School
  • Candy Count
  • Tally Tots

In all, I was staggered by the attention my students gave to the whole day. The excitement of having a new iPad would surely be enough to put some off their game. Throw in a learning walk of around ten teachers, a public holiday the day prior, and a 30 degree day and were talking about some serious engagement.

I’ve always been prickly about using ICT solely for engagement, and the apps we use do offer more than that. But I’m left super impressed about what iPads might do for our learning. Spare minutes could be used in play-based app learning, while the arsenal apps we already have assembled surely will reinforce and practice concepts we seek to teach our kids.

If you have any questions for either myself or Sam, please feel free to send us an email or comment on this post! We’ll (Sam!!!), will be sure to keep you posted in the future weeks happening! Thanks! 

Great Free App’s 4 Learning!

You may remember me saying some time ago that the tedious task of developing an application list for our year 6 and 7 students was somewhat… tedious indeed! The app’s which we had selected have been used to great effect so far, especially the free applications as the paid app’s have not begun to be downloaded until this week… as the iTunes cards arrived!

In saying this, we have, and are, always on the lookout for more great and wonderful free app’s to utilise in class and, what do you know, we’ve, or i should be saying our yr 6 team leader and iPad guru Michelle, have come across some great app’s for our students.

And so here they are!

Rover

Rover is an app that allows the user to access certain flash based content on the web, content that is normally inaccessible by viewing net based content through Safari. Mathletics is a great example of this. Rover is powered by the iSwifter platform, iSwifter also being a great free app with similar capabilities (the world’s first cloud-based Flash streaming platform for mobile devices).

World Maths Day 2012

World Maths Day 2012 is here. Today! This year World Maths Day is part of the World Education Games, where students from around the world can not only unite the world in numbers, but also unite the world in spelling! The competitions are independent, and this iPad App is for users participating in World Maths Day.

Math Dragon

Math Dragon needs help solving the sums the teacher put on the blackboard while he’s away! This app has the user controlling a 3D dragon and hunting down turtles who have the answer to the questions of a sum backed on a board stuck on their back. From their, find the answer, and blast that turtle! Once blasted the turtle will drop a ball, collect it, and pop it in the answer bin. If you get sick of waddling around, you can even fly!

Aaah! Math Zombies HD Free Lite

Do you have what it takes to kills the rampaging, well, slowly walking, zombie coming to eat you? Yes? Then this the math game for you. Answer the flash card questions quickly to put a cannon ball through those zombies or die! There are 150 levels to unlock so there is no shortage of zombie killing to be had!

Math Terms

Math Terms is a numeracy based glossary app that includes images and holds over 1000 terms from middle primary to middle secondary.

Number Battle

Number Battle allows the students to practice their mental math skills through answering short, quick, questions based on 2, 3, or 4 digit numbers covering the four operations. Students play this via a blue-tooth connection and take a photo of their friends face. On answering questions correctly, they get to add certain images to that face such as bigger ears, a hat, sunglasses, a funny looking nose, etc… A bit of harmless fun, at your friends expense! There are over 100 item to stick to faces and sound effects can also be added!

Penguin Maths

As this game states, ‘Math should be fun!’. Students can set their parameters for this game by making simple math questions asked to them simple or quite difficult, yet all based around the four operations. Students get asked questions and their penguin jumps from one ice berg to another, all the way to the finish line! If questions are answered incorrect, the poor little penguin drops in to the water. A simple yet rewarding app.

Shuttle Mission Math

Shuttle Mission Math is a math puzzle game that makes algebra, a topic we ALL LOVE, interactive. The goal of playing this game is to find the weight of each alien and assemble a team for the next shuttle mission. Well explained and good fun!

Speedo Math

Like most math app’s, and this is no different, students math skills are challenged through practicing all facets of numeracy such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, in a fun and pressure free way. The game has multiple levels and an instant results graph for students to view their progress.

Time Tables Warp

An app to assist students with learning their times tables whilst having fun as they blast asteroids and fly on cyberboard’s, gliding through a virtual 3D environment which is very well done. This app can also be downloaded for Mac’s through the Mac app store for students with laptops. A great app for its reinforcement of times table sums and probably the most engaging of the free math apps! Beats singing the times tables songs!

Dr. Suess Band

This is a great app obviously based on the Dr. Seuss experience of chaos and mayhem, all in the form of Big Band! This app changes your iPad in to a, as the app itself describes, ‘a vibrant, energetic musical instrument that all ages will enjoy!’ Users can play strange and wonderful instruments and there are over 120 combinations of sounds so users, hopefully, will always have a new sound to discover!

Fotopedia Heritage

‘Celebrate the beauty of our world!’ This app was recently placed in Apples Hall of Fame. It contains over 30K inspiring photos and is often referred to as the worlds largest photo book! Fotopedia Heritage gives users access to a virtual passport to the hundreds of sites that demonstrate the world’s ‘collective cultural and natural human legacy.’

Fotopedia Wild Friends

Fotopedia Wild Friends is a photo sharing app that is full of weird and wonderful photos of some of the planets most amazing animals, all of which have been taken by some of Europe’s best nature photographers. A great app for discussion about all things animals through the outstanding photos available.

Scribble Press

Scribble Press is essentially a book creation tool that lets kids create and share their own stories with various drawing and writing tools. Books created can go straight in to your iBook store! An excellent  and outstanding app, one that i have seen used in a few schools already, especially in the junior areas.
