iPad Inservice

29 May

On Monday I was soooooooo excited as I got to go to an iPad inservice for school.

The guy running it was excellent and the school he teaches at has one to one iPads for Year 1 and 2 (it’s on their book list!). How amazing is that? Ahh, that would be my dream.  My classroom only has 4.

Anyway for those that are interested these are the apps that he showed us.  What I loved best about them was that they all were CREATING apps, not games.


This term we have been using iMovie to film documentaries about ourselves for history (we had a Movie Premiere with our parents yesterday).

I am now dreaming of what I can get my class to do next term while using the iPads.  Maybe a time lapse video or a book trailer or an ibook!

I am linking up with My Little Drummer Boys and Twinkle in the Eye for Wordless Wednesday.

    Awesome Marleisa. I am not sure how many Ipads are in my 5 y o grandson’s classroom in NSW but one of the school’s pre-requisite was for headphones for using an Ipad. More and more schools and teachers are becoming daily users. I love technology used for learning, creating and exploring. Would you consider writing a guest post for Ready Set Teach? Love these suggested apps too. Denyse
