Carly Griffiths's curator insight, May 11, 6:58 AM

I think this is a very interesting but correct way to look at the increasing evolution of technology. The close connection between imagination and play is esstential to 21st century learning. We did not learn how to master these technologies by sitting in rows in a a classroom and copying notes off the board. This knowledge and ability is gained from exploration. I strongly believe this hands on experience to be farther more beneficial than listening or writing from a teacher perspective. As an educator myself, I feel the importance of placing the learning in the hands of the students and allowing them to determine and explore the benefits

from technology themselves.

This is a free app for iPad or iPhone that is great for revising vocabulary. It works a little like pictionary, you have to draw images to represent words or guess words from images. You can play with friends or be teamed up against a random player. Great vocabulary tool.
