Flippity is a good tool that practitioners and or their learners can use to create flashcards for any number of topics.
Flippity...
- is a free tool for creating flashcards from data in a Google Spreadsheet.
- provides clear directions for the simple steps to take to create the flashcards.
To create flashcards use the Flippity template, enter the data, publish the spreadsheet to the web, then grab the Flippity link.
The Flippity link will take users to a Flippity page on which practitioners and their learners can flip through the flashcards. Flippity also includes a shuffle function and an option to remove cards from your deck of flashcards as users flip through them.

great! Kahoot's got a twin sister now...
Amélie Silvert's curator insight, February 5, 2:16 AM

really similar to Kahoot. The only difference is that students get the multiple answer choices on their mobile devices. Works better on tablets I guess that on phones. A fun way to revise, study and learn.

I love it!

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post | EdTech @ The Branch | Scoop.it

As the year comes to an end I thought I would share some of my favourite iPad activities from this year. It was a difficult decision to narrow it down to five but here goes:

 

1.Towards the end of last year my school celebrated it's 150 year anniversary and we carried many activities with the pupils that term looking at the history of the school. One of the activities was to compare then and now photos. We use an app called InstaShake HD App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/instashake-hd/id595411264?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  to blend two photos together in different ways. We also carried out this activity during the recent World War 1 week at the school.

 

2. Last term I worked with a PE department to use the iPads to support GCSE students portfolios. One of the activities was to record video of sporting skills from different angles using the iPad's camera and then add the videos into iMovie app to use some of it's features such as split screen, freeze frame and the speed tool. More detail on this can be found here http://sco.lt/8hTUhd   ;

 

3. Early this term I began an activity with Year 6 pupils to gamify stories using Book Creator App We used the hyperlink tool within Book Creator to link text and images to different pages and give the reader options of where the story went by choosing options within a scenario. More detail can be found here http://www.redjumper.net/blog/2014/12/using-non-linear-stories-gamify-books/

 

4. In summer term I worked with a Year 3 class to use the time lapse feature in I Can Animate App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/i-can-animate/id399760501?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  ; to capture shadows moving across the playground. We set the iPad up to take a photograph every minute from 9am-3pm. Recently Apple have added the time lapse tool into the iOS 8 camera, although you cannot adjust the time between photos like you can in I Can Animate.

 

5. A few months ago Comic Life 3 App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/comic-life-3/id891378056?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  was released and within the many new templates is a newspaper front cover. We used this at school to firstly produce a weekly newspaper for the school news with Year 6 but also during World War 1 week to reproduce historical newspaper front pages of significant events during war.

 

A big thank you to all the great feedback to Teacher Guide to iPad App. Hearing how much it has helped teachers worldwide has made all the hard work worthwhile. The latest update brings a new icon, new categories of subjects and apps, a new design and 12 new ideas. Details can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

 

Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and best wishes for 2015!

Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils!

Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils! | EdTech @ The Branch | Scoop.it

In my opinion, though others may disagree, the iPad has been crying out for a simple and effective Green Screen app since it's introduction. I won't mention any specific apps but the ones I had tried were far too complicated for Primary pupils and the activities became very teacher led. I have recently been using Green Screen by DoInk. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/green-screen-by-do-ink/id730091131?mt=8 with upper Key Stage 2.

What I like most is how quickly the pupils can create their videos using the app. They find the background video/image and add that into the time line. The video of the pupils standing in front of a green screen can then been filmed in real-time over the top. Videos can then be shared to the camera roll. I particularly like using the app in conjunction with apps such as I Can Present (as a teleprompt) and iMovie (to stitch videos together and add soundtrack for GarageBand)

I am looking forward to trying more Green Screen work with other age groups next term to see how they handle the app.  I am also keen to try the Touchcast app as it includes many of the features of iMovie, Explain Everything and Green Screen in one app.

I have tried using Green Screen FX app on iPads with Year 2 with limited success so looking forward to trying this one. One of the main problems with Green Screen FX is that most of the backgrounds are of war scenes / weapons - the only useful background was a beach.

This could be quite interesting to use across the curriculum and in ways that require higher cognitives than remembering. Why not use it for literary expressions or political cartoons or the arts for deeper understanding? It can be so much more than rote quizzing!
