We are often being asked for advice about apps in primary schools. With the vast array of educational apps to choose from, teachers can find it difficult to decide which apps to use in their classrooms. This is where the Teacher Guide for iPad comes in. It features 16 creative apps including Book Creator, Comic Life, Paper 53 and Explain Everything.
Unlike many web sites which have app recommendations this guide has 200 video tutorials and over 600 lesson ideas so you can assess how easy and appropriate each app is for your classroom. I particularly like how the video tutorials are short clips, accessible from a clear menu, so you can work through them either progressively or dip into them individually. Also included are examples of children’s work produced on the apps.
Each of the apps featured also has lesson ideas arranged by subject, which is brilliant for cross-curricular work. There is also a section on how apps can be used for assessment and evidence keeping.
The Teacher Guide for iPad is bursting with inspirational ideas and for the next couple of days there’s 35% off, so it’s only £1.49.
