As an iLearner, an app that I enjoy using in class is iMovie. This is one of Apple’s own apps and they can be accessed on all of the iPads in the school.
iMovie is a fantastic app which allows you to create short movies, trailers and presentations which can include attention-grabbing sound effects, vibrant transitions, photos, film, music and animated text. Furthermore, it lets you be creative and inventive; it gives you something interesting to present and teach your other classmates about!
By using this app, it encourages collaborative teamwork as you will generally be making an iMovie in groups; it’s a fun and interesting way to display your knowledge of classroom topics through working with your friends. In addition, you can get out of the classroom and use the entire school grounds to make your film (as long as you’re back on time!), and I think that it’s always refreshing to be allowed out of class every once in a while. Plus, it gives you more freedom, independence and responsibility outside of the classroom.
Sharing your work with the rest of your class is a good way to teach them about your discoveries about your topic, as it’s funny, memorable and fascinating. It’s also a good way for you to discover what others have learnt.
