The last few ICT and Inquiry sessions have been very exciting, as we have been learning how to use two new iPad apps – Popplet and Comic Life.
The first app we learnt to use is called Popplet. You use Popple to create a mind map of ideas. We watched a DVD called “One Day in Ping Wei” which follows a young Chinese girl through the events of a typical day in her life in China. We learnt so much from this DVD about what life was like in China, and so we hopped onto Popplet on the iPads to keep track of our thinking.
The next app we learnt to use is called Comic Life. You can make a comic using this app about anything! We used it to make an information page about Australian cities and environments. Some of us made information pages about China so that we could compare cities and environments between the two countries.
Do you know a fact about China that we could have added to our information pages?
What could you use ‘Popplet’ or ‘Comic Life’ for?
