Collaborative learning is a big movement in education just now, with real belief that children work better and more efficiently with others. Miss Ward’s app basically gives you a list of ideas and activities that you can use in class for reference. Each item in the list expands to give you clear instructions that are organised using bullet points. You can even shake the iPad and it’ll select a random idea.
What we’d love to be able to do, is add our own ideas — giving us a definitive guide for collaborative learning. We get so many ideas from books, internet and other teachers, it’s a shame the app can’t be a hub for all our ideas that we’ve discovered. That being said, as a free app, it’s definitely worth a download.
