Great resource for teachers
Straightforward, practical and inspiring, this is a great book for teachers looking for useful ideas when using iPads in the classroom!
A must for all teachers who intend to use the World Cup as a topic next term (even if it is not your topic, it still provides great ideas!) The videos help and the links to the New Curriculum are helpfull too! Love the idea about the children creating their own stadium! Great work, Lee!
Brilliant - I can't wait to get started on these ideas!
I have been borrowing (stealing) ideas from Mr P for about a month now via his blog and I can honestly say it has changed my teaching. Lee has opened my eyes to the way in which iPads can be used to inspire a different way of doing pretty much anything and the things I have started to think differently as a result.
This ebook is fantastic, because the ideas are fresh, simple and easy to adapt for your own class. My boys will love the Score app, and we are just getting to grips with Explain Everything, so the World Cup is a great way to inspire them. I'm looking forward to trying out some of these activities and then taking some of them further as we move into the new academic year. The inclusion of the videos is great, because sometimes you need to see something in action to truly believe it can be done, and all credit to the children who present so well.
An essential resource, absolute bargain at 99p; I would have paid more, especially for the amount of quality teaching experiences I know will get out of it.
Great stuff Mr P! Let's have more please!
