Introducing the 1 in 3 video series

I've created a number of short video clips that introduce iPad apps or iPad activities. The idea is to share 1 idea in under 3 minutes. The first video introduces PuppetPals HD Directors Pass. The app is available on all class and teacher iPads. If you or your class manage to create your own PuppetPal videos please send them my way!

Apps in the Classroom iBooks - Lesson ideas

Apple has recently published a small set of interactive iBooks based on popular apps. The iBooks offer lesson and assessment ideas for teachers. Books for the following apps that JSD iPads have include:

Explain Everything

Puppet Pals HD

Hopscotch (KS2)

The lessons are aimed at ages 5-14 but they can be adapted for early years. They are a great resource for ideas so please take a look!

To find the books search for 'Apps in the Classroom' in the iBooks app.
