Ideas for Term 1
These examples of multimodal texts may give you some ideas for use in your classrooms this term. Most are suited to use with iPads, laptops and in the Technology Room. All tools and apps are simple to use and the children love using them.
They can be used K-6.
So why not try one (or even more) with your class in Term 1? This is a rhetorical question!!
KidPix and Beebots
Here are some ideas for using Kidpix and the Beebot cards that we have at school.
The apps collections below were created with the Web 2.0 tool EDSHELF http://edshelf.com
The app image links to info on the app, how to videos and education reviews.
It could be used to curate apps you find most useful and share apps you are using in the classroom with the parents on Edmodo, blogs or email.
It could also be used as a search engine for you to find great apps for use in the classroom.
I will be using it next term to put apps in the newsletter.
The Web 2.0 tool used to present the PIP showcase is BLENDSPACE www.blendspace.com
It incorporates text, images, weblinks and videos and would work well for displaying a variety of childrens' work on blogs and Edmodo.
