iPads in Education – Enhancing student learning by Lynda Cutting



effect 2


Adding voice to images is simple, quick and powerful. Students can share their achievements, reflect on their learning, synthesise new ideas, summarise excursions, use them as an exit ticket  and so much more. A truly creative and effective way for students at all year levels to tell their story.

This is a brilliant little app. Take a picture, swipe a line where you would like the mouth to be and record your voice. So simple that even our youngest leaders can use it but with so many possibilities that it could be used with all year levels and in all subjects. Have a photo of a test tube explain the experiment or a piece of sporting equipment explain how best to use it…..so many possibilities.

DMD Topic is very easy to use. Simply select your image and record your message. The beautiful thing about this app is that you can zoom in and out using your finger to emphasis different parts of your picture as you record.

Draw & Tell is mother great app from Duck Duck Moose (Like ChatterPix Kids) This one lets kids draw using a range of tools, add characters or stencils then record their story. They can even animate their story by moving the objects around as they record. Beautiful and simple

Turn any image of a person or object into an animated 3D video. Give it a mouth and eyes, record your voice and share the video you create. Brilliant! ( Just be a little careful with this one as there are in app purchases of costumes etc or if you want to save the Morf)

As they say…”make any photo talk”. Easy and fun with lots of animated stickers and ways to “give personality” to student work.

A very versatile app for adding voice to one image or multiple to create a short video. It is very customisable with templates, different coloured backgrounds and customisable fonts. It also include a broad range of images that are easy to search and even music to enhance the story.

Another simple app that is easy to use and has multiple possibilities. A bit like Pix N Tell  in that you just make a selection of photos, which are easy to re-order then record your voice as you flip from photo to photo and save.a quick video to share. The bonus with this app is that is also includes at least 30 lesson plans to give you lots of ideas.
