We started off the first day of 'camp' with introductions using 'Educreations'. This is a recording 'whiteboard' app in which you can drop pictures, sound (your recorded voice), and written explanations onto a class website or simply view as written material completed (or better yet, have a student share how to solve a math problem to the whole class using Air Server!). Educreations is an app for the iPad and is also available as a computer application/web site.
As we moved through our retreat week, we (the teachers) completed many activities as we were able to experiment with many 'fun' apps. (Did I mention that all the apps we used were free? Of course many had the option to upgrade!). Here are some apps that stood out...Just tap on the icon to get a description of the app!
Towards the end of the week, we took a QR Code 'Scan'venger Hunt and one of the tasks was to order a food item at the cafe using a foreign language...crazy right?!? Well, Google has an app to help you translate languages - that was the easy part! I then used the 'Comic Touch Lite' app and the 'Splice' app to create my mini-movie...
So...here it is! The debut of my first foreign language film!
Have a great day! Keep on following my blog! I'm up to three followers (thanks Tessa!).
