Organise big ideas more easily

iThoughts is a great tool to organise big ideas. Not only is it clear, easy to read and shareable, but more importantly, it can be modified as new information is added and has no limits to its size – important when discussing big ideas.

Many thanks to Mr. Sykes and the 11IGCSE students for this example of how technology supports learning in History.Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 09.17.14

Sharing our thinking with AirPlay 

AirPlay is a fantastic way for students to share small examples of work with the whole class and explain their thinking.

In this activity, students evaluate geographic factors to choose a location for a new chocolate factory in Pully then explain their thinking by displaying their choice on the board for all to see. 


Exploring physical and human geography through digital storytelling

In Year 8 bilingual geography, students are exploring the physical and human geography of South America. Online content gives students access to a rich supply of information, images and maps that they can explore at their own pace.

Puppet Edu is a great app for digital storytelling. Students can add images, video and record their voice explaining the story, which also gives them extra practice for their speaking skills in English.
