Earlier this morning, I participated in #AppShareLive, hosted by Mark Anderson (@ICTEvangelist). #AppShareLive is a series of live events, streamed through Google Hangouts where educators share their successes in using iPad apps within their classrooms.
My chosen app was the fantastic StickAround. It’s an amazing app for creating interactive puzzles for students. This academic year, I’ve been developing a range of iTunes U courses and I’ve been using StickAround to create puzzles which can be embeded within these courses. What I really like about this app is it’s simplicity: creating a puzzle from scratch is a breeze and there are also a range of templates to help get you started. In addition, students find the apps intuitive interface easy to use which means teachers don’t have to spend an age explaining how to use the app. Finally, any puzzles created are easily shareable via email, Dropbox and more.
