So, I think that Show Me and similar apps are great, but today I saw in our students all the same issues I have with it: getting it ‘just right’ and learning how to put mixed content together to tell a meaningful and fluent story. To do the girls justice they had a really good crack with an app they were using for the first time. Working with it really absorbed them, they didn’t want to finish. They were happy that it didn’t have to be perfect and they created their content. Real progress.
In getting to grips with using the apps on the iPads they are developing their flexibility and stretching themselves in different ways. Skills like this are so important.
