An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist | new ideas!!! | Scoop.it
n case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena. Any one who knows me will tell you that I am not one for using tech for tech’s sake, despite my evangelist moniker. Use of technology in a cross curricular sense should be measured and done with consideration for the best potential learning outcomes.

With all that said, I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I thought it time that I shared some of the Apps that have stuck by me or have struck me for their ease of use and impact upon learning in the classroom.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 8, 2015 1:00 PM

I was just sent to this site to look at and I think it has some pretty awesome visual storytelling potential. I have no financial relationship here -- just passing along a new tool for you to consider.


The app is coming to you from the Netherlands and co-founder of myalbum Jos de Schiffart @schiffart.


I've tested out the site and app and really like it. It is very intuitive and easy to work with. The end result visually is stunning. Plus they just released their iPhone app today.


I think lots of you could use this tool -- myself included -- to create fabulous stories for your business. You might want to try it out.


Of course, your success with this tool will depend on actually crafting stories instead of just a progression of photos. You know -- stories that have a beginning-middle-end, a problem and resolution. And don't forget the transformation that occurs, and a key message at the end. But you know what to do!


Have fun with this new app and go create some incredible stories!
