Shadow Puppet

An app to support student learning

What is it

Shadow Puppet is a really simple app to help combine pictures and audio. Research shows that if you teach someone something they remember 10%. If you get them teaching it they remember 90%. This app supports students in explaining how they do things.


There are lots of things you can do with the app.

Take a picture of a problem in maths then get students to explain their ideas on solving it.

Take a picture of an image and get students to explain their thoughts on the image

Take a picture of an exemplar piece of work, record your reasons why it is good, then share with students to support their self analysis

Take pictures of students work, then students critique each other's work by passing round the device.
